Consider power steering pump may have metal debris or sticking
valve, also power steering pressure hoses leak all the time, kinked lines or faulty manufactured hoses ( rubber blocks inside hose, but looks good outside)

How can transmmision fluid leak from rack and pinion


No, no, it just can't. Only power steering fluid goes in and out of the rack and pinion. Transmission fluid travels through the cooler lines (a supply and return line) to the radiator or a separate cooler in front of the radiator. Check again. Is it transmission fluid or power steering fluid? Transmission fluid may be leaking onto the rack and pinion.

Have a competent shop look at your steering rack. They go bad without leaking, internal seals go bad and don't hold constant pressure.

a few possibilities.
Low power steering fluid. check for correct amount on pump filler measureing guage.

Loose power steering belt. check to see if the belt slips over the power steering pulley while trying to turn the steering wheel. may need an assistant.

last, but most expensive. Rack and pinion steering bar is defective and needs replacing.

Car hard to turn to right. happened all of a sudden. Any suggestions?


You have a rack and pinion steering system with a hydraulic power assist. If your belt on the power steering pump is in good condition and properly adjusted, and your power steering fluid is at the right level, the problem is most likely with the rack and pinion unit, since you have no power assist in only one direction.

When turning it's very resistant and then when it catches, it seems to over compensate. Had outer tire rods replaced but did not correct problem. any idea?


THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY A DEFECTIVE STEERING RACK AND PINION UNIT, REPLACE THE RACK AND PINION AND FLUSH THE SYSTEM UNTIL THE POWER STEERING FLUID IS CLEAR, WARNING!! FAILURE TO FLUSH THE SYSTEM CLEAN OF DEBRIS WILL RESULT IN ANOTHER WASTED STEERING RACK AND PINION UNIT..

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!!!
