The steering system in an automobile is what converts the rotation of the steering wheel to the turning of the wheels in the appropriate direction. The two common kinds of steering include: rack and pinion, and recirculating-ball steering. The rack and pinion steering mainly employs a rack and a pinion gear that turns the automobile's wheels in response to the movement of the steering wheels. The recirculating-ball steering system includes a worm gear, Pitman arm and other rods that work together to move the vehicle's wheels. Modern automobiles use power steering in which a power assist is provided by the power steering fluid.
The power steering pump compresses the hydraulic fluid and the high pressure in the fluid aids in steering the automobile. The pump is driven by a belt-pulley mechanism powered by the engine. Newer vehicles also use electric power steering systems that employ steering sensors to detect the position of the steering wheel and the rate at which it turns. The information from these sensors are transmitted to the vehicle's computer, which in turn moves the steering shaft, accordingly.
