On the motor somewhere (probably the top, front) There will be a black cap.  It will be on top of a reservoir and it will say POWER STEERING FLUID (unless it has wore off)  The front of your motor will be where all the belts are (probably the passenger side).  The cap will have a dip stick attached more than likely.  The dip stick should have two markings on it for HOT  and COLD.  Use these two markings to make sure the fluid is filled up to at least the cold mark.  If not check your owners manual for the proper type of power steering fluid and add a little at a time checking every so often to see if it's full.
Any questions just ask...Please rate....Thanks!

I have a 1989 Nissan Bluebird SSS SR18 (Di) model KEU12NA1 Type E-EU12. I recently topped up the reservoir with an over the counter steering fluid which is transparent in color and not eh same color as...

all power steering fluid is the same actually us can use transmission fluid if u want
now being as you had to add fluid i would assume u have a leak some where in the system
you may be low on fluid also there probably air in system (when u have a leak it also allows air into system especially when you run low on fluid)
also if anyone ever put stop leak in system stop leak is a lot thicker oil and will take longer to heat up and thin out in cold weather to allow easy turning
first check for leaks repair if needed
if no leaks are found drain system add fresh power steering fluid
if that doesn't fix problem you have a bad power steering pump replace pump

1989 nissan stanza. can push start it. but when turn key it does nothing.

check the fuse
it can be starter or ignition switch
go to the starter, there are three wire on the solenoid
two big ones, check with a test light, one of them should have power all the time
the smallest one should have power when you start
if the small wire does not have power when you crank then the switch is bad
if the small one has power when you start then the starter is bad

When I turn right or left, a moaning sound emanates from under the hood of my 1989 Mercury Marquis. Is my power steering pump failing? Where do I check the power steering fluid level?

The sound should indicate low fluid. Your power steering fluid should be red...may look black depending on how old. Your manual will tell you where to fill.

Air in the power steering filter

The power steering fluid will aerate (churn and make bubbles) if the power steering fluid is overfull or underfilled.

If the steering is making a binding sensation, causing excess motor drag, then it's probably low.

Just go to auto parts store and buy their recommended fluid. It's about $3/quart usually. Some auto makers require very specific fluid for their cars, but for a Nissan, it should be somewhat standard.

There should be a dipstick that is marked with the proper fluid level on your power steering pump. It'll be marked HOT and COLD, which of course corresponds with when you're checking the fluid. If you haven't driven the car and it's morning time, check the level with COLD. If the car has been driven and is warmed up, then check it against HOT.

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.
