Steering lubricants keep the parts of the steering box properly operating. The type of lubrication depends on whether you have a manual steering or power steering box, but in either case, the lubricant must be kept at the right level to ensure the parts move smoothly. Manual steering boxes use grease, which must be packed into the steering box, while power steering uses a power steering fluid, which flows through the box keeping everything lubricated.

It is important to keep the steering box in your car well lubricated because this not only keeps it working as it should, but also serves to prevent damage and corrosion. A steering box with insufficient lubrication will grind, and this will lead to problems with the steering that will worsen very quickly as the grinding parts also start to wear down from the friction. This is why checking and adding steering lubricant is an important part of basic car maintenance, and will help your steering box to last.

Steering lubricant, like the other lubricants, oils and fluids your car or truck uses, need to be topped up or replaced fairly regularly to avoid problems like parts starting to grind. This is something that will be checked when your car is services, but is generally easy to do yourself, too. You need to make sure you have the right lubricant for your vehicle's steering system on hand in order to be able to add more whenever you need to, as well as knowing the specifics of how to check the fluids on your own car.

With most modern cars, you can check the steering fluid simply by opening the cap and taking a look, and the cap is generally labeled so you can tell it apart from the caps for other fluids. On some kinds of steering systems which use a moly or lithium-based grease for steering box lubrication, you will need to check the steering box itself, and your vehicle's manual will advise you on how to do this and what kind of steering lubricant to buy. This should be checked regularly, and also as soon as you notice any problems with the steering.
