Question about 1988 Nissan Maxima
It looks like something blew out, a seal or something. I haven't driven it since I found this puddle of fluid under it. There is a boot around it??? I don't know what anything is called, but I can show you on my car!
You should be able to tell if the leak is
from inside the steering rack bellows (Boot)
If you see there is--- no fix-- as the rack is rebuilt in a factory
not serviced on car.
May just be a leaking steering hose
Next to the tire is the drive axle boot & just grease inside
Unfortunately you have to remove the axle to clean cv joint
add new grease & boot kit or 90% of the time replace the
axle as dirt has ruined it

That is alot of work. It would **** to have a mechanic paid to do this but unless you are pretty good with a wrench and have a hoist and such then it wouldnt be worth your time. Normally what is required for something like this is supporting the vehicle on jack stands and removing both front tires. Once front tires are removed you would then have to remove the axles which includes the brakes/rotors and what not. Once the axles where removed you would unbolt the transmission and remove it. Now the problem is if the engine is supported by a mount that bolts to the transmission you are going to have to support the motor with a hoist or jack until the transmission is installed. All in all it isnt really alot of work if you know what you are getting yourself into and have all the stuff you are going to need ie jacks/hoists/plenty of tools and a good weekend. Also remember all the small stuff that might need to be unbolted to clear the transmission

SOURCE: rear main seal
I have done many the transmisson has to come out to replace it but your price is way out of line, should not be more than $400.00 give me a zip and I can get you a certified shop that can do it for less with a warrenty.

i dont think water pump failure is the fault this time.Have a look across the top of the engine at heater hoses one of them should have a bleeding screw on it,i think this engine has air in the system[airlock]if not loosen a hose at the top of the engine and start engine [idle]let all the air out make sure to keep topping up with water i think this will solve your problem.adrian;;;;
