How do i tighten power steering belt on a 1991 Nissan sentra

This is just a general answer. There are 2 ways to tighten a power steering belt, 1, by adjusting the power steering pump OR 2 by adjusting a tensioner pulley.
Inspect the belt system and see which one your vehicle uses. If the pump is adjustable, it will be mounted on one end by either a sliding bolt on a curved bracket like the alternator, or by an adjusting bolt.
If your car has an adjusting pulley, check the routing of the belt. It will normally run from the front engine pulley over the adjusting pulley then over the power steering pump pulley. The adjusting (tensioner) pulley will have to be loosened, then either pulled to the tightening position by hand and retightened, or else there will be an adjusting bolt and nut which must be turned to tighten the belt before retightening the pulley.
Sorry, I don't know your car that well so my answer is just generic.
Good luck

2003 Nissan Altman the steering wheel is hard to turn left or likings found.i check for fluid label in is the maxim mark label

your not the only one, your steering system needs flushed out, nissan sentra's have same condition . 2002 models. call dealer, they may not charge too much, to do this. if you want . if you can drain the system yourself, and replace the syeering fluid yourself, do it. also you may be able to add an additive to treat this problem, but drain it first, and make sure you fill it w/ POWER STEERING FLUID ! not transmission fluid ! also make sure the BELT is tight enough.

How do i change the belt on 1993 nissan sentra 1.6

There are potentially two rubber belts on that vehicle driving the power steering pump, water pump, alternator and air-conditioning.

There is one adjuster on the alternator bracket at the rear with locking bolt, and another tensioner pulley on the side of the engine. You may have to use a torch/flashlight to view this second one as it isn't always easily seen without one. It's also painted black, which makes it even less apparent.

Power steering reservoir for 2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S

I had this question initially. However, the Nissan Sentra (starting in 2007) has an electric Power Steering. It DOES NOT need any power steering fluid. The electric power steering is suppose to give you better fuel efficiency and lower maintenance cost.
