Question about 1997 Infiniti.5 J30

1 Answer

1995 j30t won't start

Get ready this is kinda long... first the power steering went out. I had the rack and pinion and the power steering pump replaced and it went out again in about 5 months. then sometimes it wouldn't start with the remote starter it would turn over but wouldn't start and when this happened i would have to manually start the car and pump the gas to get it started... then it started to die randomly when i would put it in reverse (i would have to give it gas as soon as i put it in reverse to keep it running). now this morning it won't turn over at all it makes a short buzzing sound then no sound at all... my dash lights and headlights will come on but they're dim... any help at all would be greatly appreciated thanks for your help

Sounds like it could be a fuel pump problem if you can get access to the fuel pump try tapping on it a few times. Sounds crazy but it works if it keeps doing it then you definently need to replace it. I would try that also if your lights are dim your battery isn't keeping a charge have the altenator checked. Hope that helps

Sounds like a bad replacement rack.. Did you buy a rebuilt rack? Look up the number for A1 Cardone.. They are in my openion the best rebuilders of rack and pinion.. You can talk to their tech team and they can answer your question.. I have never seen this problem.. i have had racks that the internal valves have went bad and lock up the rack and pump.. Post a comment here and let us know what you find so we will know too.

My 2003 ford focus lost it's power steering, mechanic replaced the rack and pinion thing - lost steering again and now the mechanic says it is the power steering pump. The rack and pinion was replaced...


if the rack and pinion was not leaking or causing problems. then he may of made a wrong move! if the rack was fine before, and you just lost power steering. then it is most likely the power steering pump or the lines that go from rack to the pump. good-day ! if a rack goes bad, you will get a bad steering problem or just bad steering.

Does a 1997 grand gt 3.1 liter have rack & pinion steering? I'm told the power steering went out and I don't know if it might be the pump or what.


Your car does have rack and pinion steering. If all of the fluid leaked out somewhere and you continued to drive, you probably have 2 problems to repair:

1. What ever started leaking (return hose, rack, pressure hose, or could just be the pump itself)
2. Power steering pump was damaged from lack of lubrication (fluid)

I went to drive my car to work this morning and lost the power steering feels like it locked up the leak of power steering fluidf is leaking from the rack and pinion not pump


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then the oil seals of the rack and pinion should be replaced. If the seals are worn out it tends to leak and can definitely feel a loss of power. If it still leaks even after the replacement then the rack and pinion should be replaced.

There are instances that after oil seal replacement it still leaks it's because that the rack and pinion has severe damage.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Power streering went and fluid is pouring out the bottom? I need to know if this is a rack and pinion system.


Possibly, but more likely a break in the high pressure hose that runs from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion assembly.

1995 talon no power steering.think steering rack maybe bad?


Have you checked the power steering fluid ? If you have none where did it go ? Check for leaks at the rack and pinion, and at the power steering pump.

Problem with steering wheel


Stay in the Car! LOL you have a problem with your power steering system. 1st Check your fluid level. 2nd check the belt. If you discover everything is ok, replace the power steering pump. That should fix it, however, if you still experience a problem, it will be in your rack and pinion. If you replace the rack and pinion you would want to change the pump anyway so no harm done. Good luck
