I doubt Nissan has a set recommendation for either one.
Generally both systems are sealed and the fluid should last for the life of the car. You could flush each system every 50k if you think there is a chance they could become contaminated.

SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel

I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: i have a 92 nissan maxima that is leaking brake

you may have to replace the abs controller thats leaking, you must clean it off and then pump the brake pedal and watch for the leak, if its coming from the lines then they can be thightened, but if its from the housing of the unit then you have to replace it. hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do you bleed the

To bleed the power steering system on your 2004 Nissan Maxima, fill the power steering fluid reservoir to the cold mark. Turn the ignition to the "ON" position. Repeatedly turn the wheels to the left and then to the right, hitting the furthest left and right positions. This process will bleed out any air that has entered the power steering system so that it works consistently. Continue to check the level of the power steering fluid while the engine is hot until the fluid is all gone.

Is there much of a difference between Power Steering Fluid and brake fluid?


If you put brake fluid in the power steering pump, you will
ruin not only the pump but the entire system almost on startup

Brake fluid is NOT a Lubricant,it closer to the coolant family

You will have to romove the fuel injector fuse & power steering
return hose & crank engine & flush out the system with new P/S
fluid

I doubt you can do that

I wouldn't start the motor have it towed to a shop

How much does it cost to have a brake flush and power steering flush for a 2004 f150 FX4 truck


prices on services will vary from town to town, state, to state, country to country. It would be impossible to give you an accurate estimate for the repairs based on the area you live in. Your best bet is to call your local service facilities, whether they be dealer or independent and find out what they charge.

For my area $89 each is pretty average.

Is power steering flush necessary


Yes ! Most power steering fluids are corrosives, that absorb moisture and eventuallyl loose their preservatives and cause foaming and eat away at seals throughout the pump and rack of the steering system. Flushing the system out as per the owner's manual recommendation helps in avoiding any expensive repairs
and inconviences with the power steering system.

I poured brake fluids in my powered steering will it damage my car please help


I will say it is not a good thing and the best thing to do is disconnect your power steering hose, drain it, pour a fresh bottle of steering fluid in it, run the engine and drain it again. Refill the power steering reservoir. Jack the front end off the ground and then turn the steering wheel back and forth about 5 times to bleed the system. You should be fine.
