Question about 1995 Nissan 200SX

2 Answers

Car was working fine yesterday, now won't start

We have a 95 nissan sx and yesterday it was running fine, the power steering rack does need replaced. My husband went to start it this morning and he said it was clicking like it wanted to start, however, it did not. There is oil in the spark plug closest to the right side and thats the only one filled. is it the battery or could the oil cause it to not start, what other problems could it be? Thank you=]

The clicking is the solenoid trying to operate the starter motor. You need to try first to clean cables on battery posts, second try to have someone jump start the car ( more than likely it is a battery problem), the other,more serious possibility is the starter motor.

i had a similar problem, with a different car though, and it turned out that the seals in the fuel pumps had been eaten away by the ethanol in the fuel i was using. i had the fuel pumps replaced as well as the filter and switched to a different fuel that contained no ethanol and i haven't had a problem since.

SOURCE: Nissan Altima 2000 - Engine oil leaking problem.

replace the front oil seal. first i would clean the engine with purple power (degrease etc.) then look at the engine and make sure the leak is not coming from above like possibly the valve cover gasket or from the oil sending unit. try to tighten the bolts on the valve cover and even the oil pan. you never know, you may get lucky. i don't know where you are but front seals are cheap but the labor on the job is what costs you.

I just had the same problem with my '02 altima SE.
Took it to Buckeye Nissan in Hilliard OH. and they had to replace the two crank sensors which.
The sensors themselves were about $44.00 a piece, but w/labor about $300.00 was the total. Hope this helps.....Now if I can just get the heater working!

How do you add power steering pump to 95 toyota tercel


Do you need to replace an existing pump or is your car currently manual steering? If it is manual steering there will be more than just adding a pump. The actual steering rack is most likely different from a power steering unit so there would be multiple components required to convert. If your pump is faulty, you just need to disconnect the lines, remove the belt then remove the pump and install the new one. While you are doing that I would flush the old fluid out of the rack to increase life span of steering rack.

Yes, but it is usually cheaper and better to buy a remanufactured steering rack. Remember to get the car realigned after replacing the rack. Also top off the lost power steering fluid.

Very hard to steer, had the power steering pump replaced, worked fine the night it was replaced, on my way to work the next morning, it started having problems steering again. Please help!


Check the fluid level and add if it's low on fluid, look for visible leaks that will need to be addressed. The only other thing to that may have gone bad is the power steering rack and will need to be replaced. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your got your car running 100% again soon.

My nissan 200 sx headlight wont work have canged


Check fuses, Get a tester and see if you actually get power to the lights. If you do get power and the lights don't work anyway then it is likely the light switch located on the steering column( has blinker, and light switch together). common Nissan problem.

How do i bleed my power steering rack on subaru legacy rs turbo


if its been a week, there should no tbe any air. if its heavy, the rack could be bad, or weak pump????? any noises? air will usually cause a whiney noise, and there will be air whipped, foamy fluid in the pump. A pump pressure regulator could be stuck open, not allowing full pressure? I would have a shop diagnose it, tell them the history and see if they can find a cause.

I have a 95 nissan altima and i wanted to know how do i know if my power steering pump is going out when i start the car it makes a loud whinning noise


If the pump is low or empty, the most likely cause would be the high pressure hose is leaking and needs to be replaced. If the power steering reservoir is full and the pump is still making noise then it could be the pump or a restriction in the rack valve body.

Power steering


Sounds like a bad steering rack & pinion assembly... is it only bad in one direction or both...?
If both then it's the rack assembly... Hope this helps...;-)

99 Maxima Power steering sticking


I am a Nissan ceritifed Scope Technician with over 10 years experience in a Nissan dealership.

To me, it sounds like your problem is "morning sickness". The problem is there only after the vehicle sits for a period of a few hours (overnight) and then is gone once the vehicle warms up some.

What happens with "morning sickness" is this: there are nylon rings in the pinion section of the steering rack and pinion. Over time, these nylon rings wear grooves into the aluminum housing in which they reside. When the steering rack and pinion is cold, the pressurized power steering fluid can move past these rings causing difficulty in steering or an unsmooth steering condition. Once the fluid warms up some, the nylon rings expand and seal the gap and fluid can't get past anymore and it stays where it's supposed to be, leading to the normal steering you experience the rest of the day.

The only repair for this condition is to replace the power steering rack and pinion. A used one can be a gamble as this could reoccur in a short time. A brand new one is overly expensive. That leaves a good quality aftermarked remanufactured rack and pinion as your best option. And be sure to have the vehicle aligned when that work is completed.

Hope this helps!!!

remove battery at least 15 mins or more before starting work. mark steering rod to st/rack and remove bolt. remove two subframe bolts at rear and lower the frame thus creating space to work. remove st/ rod. lock steering from turning. very important as not have airbag problems. remove tierod ends from knuckls. remove hoses from rack and mounting bolts . remove rack assembley from drivers side. you should replace as a long rack ie. rack with new inner tie rods already fitted. reverse order for fitting. pay attention as not catch rod bellows thus tearing them. use new seals on hoses. make sure to flush system of any debri. use new p/s fluid and after starting car turn steering from end to end to bleed system off air . time appox. 3.5 to 5.0 hrs.good luck
