Reader Question: Hello,
I have accidentally put water in my steering fluid tank thing, what will this do to my car?
I am very worried as the car belongs to my boyfriend.
Oooopss…it is a small problem! Do not worry though. I do not think you really did any damage to the engine.
I would recommend you take the car to your local fast lube oil change place and have them flush out the power steering fluid and install new fluid.
It is a good idea to have that done periodically anyway so you might be doing him a favor in a round about way.
