Question about 1989 Nissan Sentra 4 Door

Power steering leak/Squealing car

I have a 1989 Nissan Sentra. It has a power steering leak, but the hose I got to replace the leaking one doesn't match. The leaking is making my car squeal when it turns over (the fluid is dripping on one of the belts). It is the hose on the upper left hand side of the engine compartment. What is the correct part I need?

Sounds like you bought the wrong hose. also check the o-rings & be sure to use new ones when replacing the hose. Be sure you have it in right & not cross threaded. If it's cross threaded,you got a major problem. First it will always leak,second you probably ruined the pump or rack where it screws in. If it's engine oil,then buy a dye from the auto parts store of choice & have it checked by a shop with an ultra violet light.

Power steering squeal


You should not turn power steering to extreme locks and hold them there constantly. The squealing is the noise the power steering unit is screaming," You are killing me".

Power steering fluid leaks quickly out 1989 Volvo 740 GLE wagon


The most obvious places are the Power steering rack itself - at each end, and the hoses that are attatched to it.
A leak at the pump is easily spotted.

Hoses are cheaper to replace than seals on the rack (which may require a new unit)

Power steering now broken


The leak is probably from one of the hoses, you will only here squealing if the steering box gets air into it, not hearing any noise is a good thing at this point, just be sure to keep fluid in the reservoir to keep air out, just don't over fill it. First, try any over the counter power steering stop leaks from any auto parts store, 9 times out of 10 that won't fix you problem, but it is worth a try. If that does not work you have two options, get the leaky hose replaced, or just keep fluid in the reservoir.

Hope this helps
