If you look at your radiator, there a big hose that comes out of the radiator on the left side. Follow it to engine and it will lead you to the thermostat. Hope this helps....

SOURCE: Were is the fuel pump located?

The fuel pump IS located in the fuel tank. It is easily accessed in this particuar model, under the rear seat. If you have an arm reat in the middle of the rear seat, you'll need to go in through the trunk. Remove the cover from the the far back, between the back of the rear seat and the trunk space. Remove approximately 4 to 6 screws in the center piece of cardboard that attaches the armrest and rearseat to the cross menber of seperating trunk from seat.
From the back seat, grab the top of the back rest of rear seat, PULL HARD forward on left and right sides . This should disconnect the top. Then, on left + right-sides, toward the lower cushon, there will be a bolt, remove them.
Then pull up the bottom cushion.
In the middle of the floor you have left, where the bottom cushion once was, you will find the top of the fuel pump access. From the top there is a cable that goes toward the driverside, follow it to the connector which should be cover by a small piece of foam. Remember to diconnect the pump before attempting to service or replace it.

SOURCE: How do you remove the power steering pump on a 96?

Can't provide pictures, but it's not hard to describe. You will need a normal set of metric sockets... a 13mm and a 17mm if I remember correctly. You will also need an adjustable wrench and screwdrivers. Don't forget lots of towels. The power steering pump is the lowest moving part on the engine. It's on the passenger side in front and to the left of the oil pan. It has two lines and a belt running two it.

Remove the rubber hose and drain the fluid ( about 1 qt ). Use your adjustable wrench and take the other line off. This is a banjo fitting with two copper gaskets (don't loose them). There are two bolts on the right of the pump. Loosen those, do not remove the bolts yet. There is another bolt on the left with a second, bigger nut... loosen the smaller nut and use your adjustable wrench to back the PS pump back to get the belt off. Now remove all three bolts and the pump should come off. Reassembly opposite of removal. Before starting the engine, fill the PS fluid tank with 1/2 qt to avoid air bubbles in the system. If the power steering doesn't work, you may need to let it sit several hours to let the bubbles in the fluid pop. Good luck.

SOURCE: location of fuel filter on 96 nissan Maxima

It is located in the engine compartment, next to the firewall on the drivers side. It is secured to the firewall with a clip. It has a clamp at the top and bottom secured by a phillips head screw. Hard to take out from the top, but with small arms and fingers, you should be able to replace it in about 10 minutes.

Where does the power steering fluid go?


Go to this photo:

On the left side of the engine about half way in the compartment there is a cylindrical container with a black top on it. Power steering fluid goes here.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My 96 Maxima is hard to steer. when cold

Try having the fluid changed and the filter in the powersteering pump changed and that should get rid of the problem. Please rate if this helped. If the fluid is smelly and brown it needs to be flused and use lucas power steering fluid to fill it with, if it does not help then you will have to pressure test the pump output and electric control valve to see if it's failing, if not then you have a rack and pinion problem and will need to be tested to see if a clyinder is bypassing.

Both Serpentine belts

The power steering pump will have a tensioner you need to loosen. Then for the other belt. There is a tensioner located on the pass side. You can see it if you look down the pass side of the engine.
