The power steering system is a revolution in the automobile industry which helped the drivers to handle the vehicle very smoothly at ease. Without the need for the extra manual effort the power steering system reduced the effort of the driver in steering. With these advancements, to reduce the fuel consumption and weight of the power steering system, the hydraulics in the power steering system was replaced by the electric power steering systems. The electric power steering systems eliminated the hydraulics and thus, there was no need of power steering pump and power steering hoses. This way the power steering fluid leaks was prevented. In the electric power steering system, one contributing component is the electric power steering rack.
The electro-hydraulic power steering system uses electric motor only to run a hydraulic pump, but in case of electric power steering system, it uses entirely an electronic system. You can find the electronic motor connected to the steering column or power steering rack. Here the electric power steering rack plays a major role as the electric motor is directly attached to it. It is easy to handle a vehicle with electric power steering system. In the electric steering system, the gear is a manual rack with an electric motor attached to the steering rack. When there is any change in the performance of the electric power steering rack then you need to look for replacement. If not the worn factory-fitted electric power steering rack will affect the entire performance of the vehicle.
