When it comes to Mustang steering, nothing quite beats a power steering system. The increased power from the Mustang engine allows you easily turn your steering wheel, which will make for a much more enjoyable driving experience. By reducing the amount of pressure required to turn the wheel, a Mustang power steering system allows the driver to seamlessly make those difficult maneuvers and turns on the roadway and on the track. Though everyone knows that it makes the driver exert less force when turning the wheel, have you ever wondered how a power steering system actually works?
In order to turn properly, the correct amount of fluid must be transferred throughout your power steering system. That is where the Mustang control valves come into play! Mustang control valves serve as crucial middlemen that are tasked with linking together the various power steering parts scattered throughout your muscle car. Bolted to the pitman arm byway of a castle nut, Ford Mustang control valves are responsible for controlling the fluid transfer between your power steering pump and the slave cylinder.
The efficient transfer of fluid throughout the various steering components is essential towards making any power steering system work, and the Mustang control valves assist in making sure the fluid is evenly distributed to the parts required to turn the vehicle. Because they are constantly dealing with the input and output of fluid, there is always a chance that your factory Mustang center link could spring an untimely leak.
Splattering fluid, as a result of your leaky Ford Mustang control valve, could result in fluid spilling into areas that it does not belong in, which can cause a slew of expensive repairs down the road. Driving around with a leaky or impaired Mustang control valve is not only dangerous to you, but to the other drivers as well. The best way to avoid any power steering-related problems is to swap out your damaged factory equipment for a replacement Mustang control valve as soon as possible.
