1994 nissan altima power steering pump leak

It looks as if the power steering pump on my 1994 nissan altima is leaking on the top. Does it have 1 or 2 bolts? Can the "O" ring be changed to fix the problem? Could the hose just be loose?

It has one bolt. and yes go to the autoparts store with the o rng and they can match it up, the o rings are known for rotting and make it leak....

and yes the hose could possibly be loose.

Power steering fluid low 1994 altima. i noticed leaks under the car. Does the pump leak when going bad or could it just be a hose?


The power steering pump doesnt leak unless the resevoir is cracked. The hoses can be bad or the seals for the steering mechanism could be bad also. have it looked at by a pro

My 2005 altima's steering is stiff. The PS fluid is good. Mechanic changed the serpentine belt that was cracked wondering if that would help, but it didn't. it is making no noise. What should i...


no noise when turning and stiff steering is usually narrowed down to 2 things. a bad power steering pump or bad rack and pinion assembly. the rack and pinion is most of the time leaking fluid when it is bad, but you stated the fluid is good. I suggest to remove the power steering reservoir cap , start the engine and look inside the reservoir. the fluid should be swirling if the pump is working especially when turning the steering wheel. if the fluid isn' t moving then the pump is most likely bad.

I drive a 99 Nissan Altima GXE, the car makes what sounds like a whale's mating call whenever I use the steering wheel. Is this purely a steering fluid a problem? Does anyone else have this issue?


it is hard to say over the internet but check the resovoir bottom for the power sterring and see if there is fluid in there . If not the items that usually leak on that model car is the high pressure power sterring hose which you will see on top next to the firewall, the return hose and the pump itself but it is hard to tell which one because the return hose attaches to the pump and if leaking would make it look like it is the pump.

Car is jerking while driving on the highway and when car is stopped at a light it cuts off and the stern wheel gets stiff


the steering wheel gets stiff, because the car died and your power steering pump is stopped. beeing a 1994, you may have a fuel pump issue (nissan had campaign on those), but most likely no longer available to you, because of the age of the car. they purge campaigns out as years go on. you could have an issue with distributor. oil leaks pass the seal and gets inside of the distributor assembly on the signal plate (internal component of distribitor) and messes with the ignition system/spark plugs. you may also have a broken intake gasket. When was the last time you did a tune up?? changed plugs, fuel filter and so on???

My Nissan Maxima '92 leaks power steering fluid. I had someone look at it but they couldn't find the leak. I just put in new fluid every few weeks and it works fine but if there is an easy fix I would like...


if there is a leaking seal in the power steering rack and pinion or in the hydraulic pump, a power steering stop leak may swell the seal enough to stop the leak. if there is still a leak, it is likely a damaged / corroded line or fluid cooler. next time you need to top up your fluid, i recommend Lucas brand power steering stop leak / treatment. after a couple top ups it will stop the leak it if is a rubber seal problem. good luck!

I have a 95 nissan altima and i wanted to know how do i know if my power steering pump is going out when i start the car it makes a loud whinning noise


If the pump is low or empty, the most likely cause would be the high pressure hose is leaking and needs to be replaced. If the power steering reservoir is full and the pump is still making noise then it could be the pump or a restriction in the rack valve body.
