I replaced the rack in pinion on a 1999 Nissan Quest. How do i bleed the air out of the lines on the steering after doing the rack change? Is there a bleeder valve on the pump or on the rack somewhere? Thank You for your help

Just fill the reservoir and start the engine and turn the steering from lock-to-lock several times then shut the engine off and let the foam settle in the reservoir. Make sure it is at the proper level and do it again. Do this until the fluid level stays steady and the thing shuts-up and quits whining. No, there is not any kind of bleeder screw.

Troubleshooting power steering after pump, rack &pinion have been replaced


I would say you have a defective power steering pump since the rack is replaced. You did bleed the air out right? Raise the front wheels off the ground and slowly turn the wheels left to right and see if the air is bled out of the system. There is not "reset button"

you need to bleed the rack. you can try to turn the steering wheel to the left and hold for 5 sec and then to the right and hold, continue this a few times check fluid and repeat. you can also try to loosen line on rack and turn wheel to bleed air out then tighten before turning wheel again.

How do you bleed the Rack and Pinion for a 99 Hyundai Accent?


hi from uk if you are referring to power steering ? you do not bleed as you do brakes you preferably rais front wheels off ground then ensure vehicle supported then with engine running and the p/steer reservoir kept to full turn the steering from left to right fully for a few times this ensures any air in system is expelled from rack and hydraulic lines back to reservoir and out keep oil level check so level does not fall low as to air induction into system then lower car and check p/steer operation hope this helps ps make final check for any leaks for a couple of days as a precaution ?
