Steering gets stiff when turing


Sounds like your power steering pump is acting up. Check for steering fluid level and make sure it is at proper level. If that doesn't help or the fluid is really old, consider flushing the power steering system. It is not very difficult to do. Makes it easier if you have someone to help. There are great deal of online videos on how to flush a power steering system. If that doesn't fix your problem, then it may just be the time to replace your power steering.

Brake System Flush and Power Steering System Flush


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.

How to remove my power steering pump


hope this one help http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/maintenance/3322636
This instructable is designed into four main parts. Here's the outline:

1) Gather the materials
-- Instructable step 1 - This includes tools, a new pump, fluids, etc.
2) Remove the leaking pump
-- Instructable step 2 - Drain the Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 3 - Remove accessories from Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 4 - Remove the pulley and bolts
-- Instructable step 5 - Remove power steering pump
3) Install the new pump
-- Instructable step 6 - Place the new power steering pump
-- Instructable step 7 - Press on the power steering pump pulley
-- Instructable step 8 - Align the pulley and attach the belts
-- Instructable step 9 - Flush and fill the power steering system
4) Cleanup
-- Instructable step 10 - Cleanup

You'll need some tools to complete this task. Before you start, gather the necessary equipment -- you will not be able to use the car once you start the replacement! It is always a good idea to have a friend on call, or a second car available.

Equipment list:

  • Power Steering pump (to replace defective pump)
  • Two (2) quarts power steering fluid or appropriate ATF (to flush and fill). More than 2 quarts if flushing the rack is desired.
  • Power Steering Pulley Puller set (to remove and attach the pulley). Some auto parts stores will loan the tool sets.
  • Socket set.
  • Open end wrench set (for use with puller set).
  • Leverage pipe or extension bar (in case the pulley is hardened on the spindle).
  • Drain pan (to drain & flush power steering system).
  • Wheel bearing grease for sliding pulley on the pump hub.
  • 2' wood 1x2 for assistance with aligning the pulleys. Any straight tool will work fine -- a level, metal rod, wood, whatever.

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.

Power steering pump vibrates


I have a similar problem. The power steering felt jerky just the moment you start and drive off. My mechanic flushed out the old fluid with a power steering flush fluid and replenish with new fluid and that did the trick. The old fluid looked clean in the resovior but down in the steering rack, its a different story. The fluid is dark and contained some sludge. No wonder the steering assist was jerky.
