to bleed the power steering all you have to do is fill the resorvoir and start the motor and turn the steering from stop to stop until there is no air in the system and recheck the level and there is no air in the fluid.

I have a 96 or 97 the radio dont play it works but but no sound it will like frist thing in the morning then it stops son i know it works so we are tryn to put a new cd player in it thinkn maybe when it...

To be clear, the sound works for a while and then cuts out and never starts again such as when you hit a bump? In other words it has to be left off for a long period of time then it will work again, correct?

If so, the one of electrical components (likely in the amplifier is bad), the most practical thing to do is hit ebay or the local junk yard for at matching replacement radio.

Hope this helps.

My nissan maxima will not warm up inside when it is started and left to idle. will warm up if drove.

this is because your vehical is heated by hot coolant flowing through a small radiator the blower motor blows air through this and out your vents and gives u heat but unless you drive your vehical the coolant will not build heat for quite a period of time there for your interior will not warm up as quick

You probably have air in the system. Take off the radiator cap and start the engine. Turn the heater on hot. Let it warm up and fill the radiator as the level drops. Make sure the thermostat opens and coolant is flowing in the radiator. Continue to add coolant until the level stops dropping. Also check for any bleed ports on the hoses or housings where they attach. If you see any bleed ports, crack them open and let any air out. Put the cap back on and see if the heater is working. If this doesn't work, please get back to me.

Check out your cold start choke. It is designed to cause your fuel mixture to run "rich" until it warms up. It is basically a heat sensitive coil that reacts to heat from the exhaust manifold.
