We recently changed the power steering line on our 93 Maxima. Bought the hose from Advance Auto Parts. No problem.

Power steering line is leeking can I fix it without replacing the line?


You can try LUCAS power steering sealant. It comes in a bottle and you add it to the full line on the dipstck. But I would just replace the line.

Power steering is stiff in idle but ok when driving


Hello there:
when you installed the line did you fully bleed the system, and are the lines all tight bleeding can take some time to occomplish but once done properly it should have no more problems
you want to very slowly turn the wheel while the bleeder valve is cracked untill all of the air is completly out of the system or i would suggest taking it to a repaitr shop and have it done by a certified repairman ok best regards mike

Power steering leak --a lot


Three areas of concern. A leaking steering rack: By looking under the car, look for the rods which tie the left and right wheels together in the center. By turning the steering wheel fully to the left or right, you can look behind the front wheels 1/2 way down and you will see the rod I am referring to. Following the rod to it source of attachment, it will have a rubber bellows type cover surrounding is as it gets near the center of the car. If the rubber is torn and has oily residue, that is where you are loosing your power steering fluid. It is a leaking power steering rack. A fairly expensive repair, best left to a professional. Buying a used one is a real crapshoot because they are very prone to failure as they get older.
2. The high pressure hoses will leak on these cars. It is difficult to see these without putting the car on a lift because the pump is on the firewall side of the engine. If you notice the fluid dripping near the pump, it is a higher probability than not that it is the high pressure hose than the pump. Also look at the return hose coming from the reservoir, Sometimes the clamps aren't that tight and it will cause a leak, but your description sounds like a leak under pressure.
