Question about 1999 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Power steering problems.

Recently rebuilt my power steering pump. Since then, when i turn the steering and after the driving for some time, there is some continuos tugging of the steering and grrrr noise. This is more pronounced when the car is at rest and does not happen when the engine is cool.

    The power steering fluid is fine. The noise is still there. Would you maybe recommend bleeding the fluid perhaps?

Why does my Steering whine and difficult to turn?


Power steering pump. If the gears in the pump become worn or "galled" the pump will whine and it will be harder to steer until the pump is replaced. **Check the power steering fluid level first. If it's low add to the correct amount. This may help if it's just low on fluid. If this doesn't help it is probably new pump time.

If there is a leak in the power steering and makes this rattle sound, does that mean they need to replace the power steering pump? how do you fix a leak? for the 97 toyota avalon. The power steering...


If power steering pump is leaking your options are: replace w/new or rebuilt or have yours rebuilt.
They make stop leak for pwr steering units but it's a very temporary fix. In answer to "driving it" - it's at your own risk - if it locks up then there's possibility of an accident. I'd get it fixed and be done w/the worries. Have a reputable shop look at it and give you an estimate.

Power steering fails


I had the same problem, there is a cooling fan for the power steering pump that went out and caused some damage to the pump. The intermitent problem finally got worse and I had the pump replaced read: expensive about $1000. See if they have a rebuilt pump available.

try lucas power steering stop-leak. drain some of the fuild and then pour that in. it is for surging rack & pinions, not just for leaks. if that doesn't work then you may have a defective rebuilt rack.
check power steering pump pressure, might be weak.
