Question about 1995 Nissan Sentra

Open Question

Ringing sound when after driving 10 miles on hot day - looks like PS Pump

There is a loud ringing sound after 10 miles on a hot day. Replaced the water pump twice and the idler gear and no change. Removing the belt for the alternator and AC Compressor does not change the noise. Removing the belt for the water pump and PS pump stops the noise.
Is this a common problem with a Nissan?
It is strange to think it is a bearing problem with the PS pump that has to wait till it is warm to make the noise? There is slight movement on the PS pulley in and laterally. Does not feel bad enough to make the noise?

there is going to be a tensioner pulley near the front of the motor on top that you have to apply pressure to or you can loosen the alternator and take it off that way,just remember how it came off so you can put it back on

I have an 05 TB. I have replaced the idler pulley twice in the three years I owned it. Cheap and quick fix. Call your dealer and get the part. Problem is that the part comes with the whole bracket. Take the pulley of the new part and put it on the existing bracket already on your vehicle. 30 minute fix.

SOURCE: water pump

You should not have to do all that. Let me know if you dont get diagral(sometimes happens)

  1. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old. 0900c1528018cf80.jpgFig. 1: Water pump assembly-Z24i and KA24E engines 0900c1528018cf81.jpgFig. 2: View of the water pump assembly-VG30E engine
  1. Remove all drive belts.
  2. Unfasten the fan shroud securing bolts and remove the fan shroud assembly.
  3. Unfasten the water pump retaining bolts (note the different size bolts on the VG30i and VG30E engines), then remove the water pump and fan assembly, using care not to damage the radiator with the fan.
If the fan is equipped with a fluid coupling, do not tip the fan/pump assembly on its side, as the fluid will run out.
To install:
  1. Remove all traces of gasket and/or sealant from the pump-to-cover mounting surfaces. Install the water pump and tighten the M6-size mounting bolts to 3-7 ft. lbs. (4-10 Nm). Tighten the M8-size bolts to 7-12 ft. lbs. (10-16 Nm) on Z24i engines, or 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-21 Nm) on KA24E, VG30i and VG30E engines. Always use a new gasket between the pump body and its mounting.
The KA24E engine uses a liquid gasket. Carefully scrape any old gasket material from the mounting surfaces, then apply a 0.079-0.118 in. (2-3mm) continuous bead of liquid gasket around the entire mounting surface.
  1. Install the fan shroud assembly.
  2. Install the drive belt and adjust the tension.
  3. Refill and bleed the cooling system (refer to ), then start the engine and check for coolant leaks.

Power steering hard

Hey Kumar,
Does the steering get easier when it gets hot? If it get easier when hot, its the rack and pinion gear. The valve body (actually a teflon composition ring(s) o-rings/valve bore housing are getting worn to the point where they are not controlling the fluid flow when its cold,, when the rack and pinion gets hot, the valve bore expands and "corrects" the clearance which in turn, controls the fluid flow. The valve body bore in the rack and pinion housing is worn where the teflon rings ride against the bore.
This is nothing that can be fixed except by replacing the entire rack and pinion gear. Drain ALL the power steering fluid from the pump also and fill with fresh new fluid.

Fuel delivery problem?

If its loud then the fuel pump is defective and needs replaced. Fuel pumps should make a high pitched sound but not real loud. Fuel pressure at the fuel rail should be 30 psi.

Power steeing fluid leaks

try replacing the o ring or use double o rings between the reservoir and pump, pressure builds from use and the fluid blows out of this o ring even after the vehicle is off. When the dealer replaces the pump they re-use the reservoir and o ring so the problem does not get fixed. The fluid runs down the pump and the lines to the rack, instead of washing the engine and observing where the fluid is leaking from, they replace good parts until they find the problem. Sometimes one o ring isn't enough.

1973 Corniche engine shut down

I sounds like a fuel delivery problem, I would first check the filter -above the rear axle- if it's clear, test the fuel pump delivery. ps; the original filter elements are hard to get, we usually fit a good in line unit instead, leaving the original filter housing in situ. Also, unless they are fairly new now is the time to replace the fuel hoses back there.
