    Gooday,

    The model is L5-Euro Series (Nissan Pulsar 2005-1.8cc 4 door, Automatic Transmission, Lift Back-not a sedan)

    This car today is still operating like a new car, being used as an Express Courier Service car

    with 350,000km on the clock. An amazing small to medium vehicle. Some days the engine is never turned off for ten hours use.

Hi.
you have not actually said which model you have, but the following seems to apply to all nissan power steering systems.

Recommended fluid is Genuine NISSAN PSF or equivalent.
Refer to MA-11, "Fluids and Lubricants" .
which then says under the
note:
*3: For Canada, NISSAN Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF), DEXRONTM
III or MERCONTM or equivalent ATF may also be used.

basically NISSAN PSF (power steering fluid)
or equivalent. DEXRON III (most automatic transmission fluids (ATFs) are dexron III)

The fluid can be drained by disconnecting the thicker power steering line at the steering rack & pinion. The reconnect the line and add fresh power steering fluid

SOURCE: power steering fluid foaming & backing up out

that is signs of a leak
most likely cause is the rack

first start by draining the pump by removing the lower hose that is attached with a hose clamp

then refill and bleed

I suspect the foaming will return within a day

SOURCE: power steering gets really stiff

Try a new belt. When belt is cold it's tight as it gets warm I suspect it's slipping through the pulley. Could be rack or pump, but I'd try the belt first.

97 dodge dakota power steering only works above 1000 rpms


Usually with a new pump, Engine off and belt off, I take the return line loose, aim down into a container, put in new fluid, rotate the pulley with my finger, fluid comes out of return line, when fluid looks clear, I consider it good. Is that the way you do it?
I can't say that will work on every year--make--model, but, it seems to work for me.
If no fluid, have to check power steering lines and rack. Just my opinion.

I need to put steering wheel fluid for my 05 chevy equinox don't know where to put it in. Can someone please help me?...


2005-2009 models used electric power steering assist exclusively. There is mo power steering pump, reservoir, or fluid on these models. Instead they use an electric motor mounted to the steering column to provide steering assist 2010 models still use the electric power steering on the four cylinder models but also use a conventional hydraulic power steering on the v-6 models. If you have no power steering assist check the 60 amp main fuse for the power steering in the under hood fuse block if that is o.k. You will need a scan tool to find out what is wrong with the system. It is not uncommon for the electric motors to fail or for the fuse to blow while jump starting the vehicle.

Need to find out where the power steering fluid is we think it needs someadded but it is not where the book shows and we can't find it??????


The Power Steering Fluid has a reservoir with a cap on it and has a belt and pulley connected to the device. Hoses will lead to the rack and pinion system on the firewall. Underhood Check
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    How to bleed the power steering system on a 2004 acura tl


    Hi
    You don't actually have to bleed a power steering system as such, its not like a brake system. If the fluid bottle was empty and you refilled it, or you have replace the steering pump then it's only a simple operation.
    1. Ensure that the power steering fluid is topped up.
    2. Start the engine.
    3. Turn the steering wheel to full lock in one direction until you hear a hissing type sound which is the relief valve.
    4. Then do the same as #3 in the opposite direction.
    5. Do this about 3 - 5 times per side.
    6. The hissing sound should get quieter as the fluid gets around the system
    7. Recheck fluid level.
    The power steer system should operate as normal after doing the above.Hope this has helped, let me know how you get on.

    Power steering fluid leek on 89 honda accord


    Should not be too hard. I have not done one on an 1986 model but I have on a 1983. The principle will be the same.
    • You need to drain the fluid.
    • Disconnect all the pump hoses.
    • Release the pump pivot and adjustment bolts and remove the pump from the vehicle.
    Replacement is the reversal of the removal operation.
    • Tighten all the bolts.
    • Adjust the drive belt tension.
    • Fill and bleed the system.
    Following the above procedure should get the job done. Take your time doing the job and double check your work at the end of the job. Check for any fluid leeks from the system.
