It's not a regular occurrence that you realize that you have to buy a replacement Power Steering Pump to fix your vehicle. The vehicle in your driveway is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to all the cars, trucks, and SUVs currently being driven today. You picked your Optima because its fuel efficiency and economical pricing agreed with your nature; so why would you settle for second best when it comes to great quality auto parts? While it may not be difficult to buy replacement parts for Kia vehicles, these days only the highest quality are required to repair your automobile.
Believe it or not, but for a long time there was no such thing as power steering. If you were to analogize your Kia Optima steering system with the human body, the power steering pump would be its heart and the fluid would be its blood. Your Kia Optima power steering pump is connected to the pulley on the crankshaft via a drive belt, and derives its power by borrowing the crank's momentum. It compresses the fluid and sends it to the gearbox to assist with your steering. You will notice a gradual loss of your power steering if the power steering pump is leaking, but if it seizes you can expect no power steering at all.
Don't let a Power Steering Pump repair spell the end of your car, truck, or SUV, and don't gamble with its condition by using anything but the highest quality repair parts.
