Question From oceansea on my 2001 nissan frontier xe is making squeaking, slipping sounds

my 2001 nissan frontier xe is making squeaking, slipping sounds past couple months. getting more frequents, scaring me to drive and felt like has brief loss of power couple days ago while parking. Help?

someone told me power steering fluid is orange rust colored and gunnky and needs replaced which i dont know how or have tools for.

video with audio here

Response From nickwarner Top Rated Answer

I couldn't hear much of anything. Did you have the engine on? Most of that vid was just looking at your heater control and your CD player. Why not under the hood where this noise is?

Power steering fluid that is contaminated should be dealt with or it will cause expensive damage. If you do not have the tools and equipment to do this, swing by a shop that does and they can take care of this for you fairly reasonably.

2000 Maxima engine temp issues

Question From jarmstrong on 2000 Maxima engine temp issues

2000 Nissan Maxima. Yesterday, the engine temp started shooting up quickly upon acceleration from a stop but then came right back down. Doesn't do it every time but does it enough to where I imagine it is a problem. Does not run hot when idling or after it gets going again after starting from the dead stop. Have Googled this but haven't found anything similar to this situation. Antifreeze reserve tank was empty so I refilled it this morning, but it did not solve the problem. We also have issues with the heater taking a long time to blow hot air, and even then it comes and goes. Any ideas?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Just the recovery tank changing says it's leaking somewhere and still not full in the system which it must be. Heater observation and that it was low about confirms that.


Pressure test for leaks and for head gasket problems as well IMO for something like this. If no radiator cap on this system just only the remote tank you wont know so easily if it's full by eye,

Don't know if this is related or not, but I believe I am also leaking power steering fluid.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Doubt the relationship but that too needs to be found for sure and fixed. See if you can see where it's leaking PS fluid, hoses, or sometimes at bellows of rack and pinion perhaps or anywhere it travels.


The engine coolant problem is potentially very costly if ignored. You must know it's truly full not just tank and can stay full or if not a bigger problem than it might be now it will be,

Response From jarmstrong

Checked radiator hoses after it was driven for a brief time today. Both were hot. This is about the extent of my ability to figure out what the deal is, but doesn't that indicate the coolant is flowing through the engine block?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

You need help then at once. Again, the recovery tank was found empty which is NOT normal so you know it has a problem and if YOU can't verify level any which way at radiator and in turn means engine is in fact full get the help.


If not caused by a leak to ground for example it could have blown it out to ground unseen by either plain overheating or a head gasket problem that could be minimized by not driving this any more than to find out. Whatever the original cause the weak link will be damage to the engine's head gasket and more if ignored.


Some designs do not allow for a pressure cap on the radiator making it more difficult to know. Just feeling warm/hot hoses is NOT indicating liquid or gaseous heat so far,

95 nissan idleing and acceleration problem

Question From Guest on 95 nissan idleing and acceleration problem

a bit about the car's history, and things i've noticed:

i have a 95 nissan altima
when i first noticed a problem with the car, i was at a red light and it began to jar and mist a bit

i've noticed a lack in it's ability to accelerate properly. every so 20 mph it picks up, it has a pull to it- i have no other way to describe it
when i am at a stop my car shakes, and idles really bad (to the point where the person in the car next to me could notice)

the transmission has been replaced by the previous owner

once i was in traffic and heard a squealing sound and it began to idle tremendously ; i thought it was going to die

another time i was making a right turn and heard a popping sound
and a few raddelling noises, but these only happened once and i haven't heard any more

also, it would use a lot of power steering fluid, but as of my and the mechanics knowledge that is no longer a problem

the local mechanic who looked at it for me was for certain it was a suspension problem- something to do with the lower right control arm control bushin
which i just replaced- a nearly $300 part that did me little good(no popping sound when i turn )

it still mist, idles, and shakes when i come to a stop, there is no difference in the acceleration
and I'm wondering if maybe all it needs is a tune up, or spark plugs?
maybe something to do with the fuel injector or sensor?

it's driving me crazy, so please give me some advice before i spend $300 on another somewhat unnecessary part

Response From Guest

I had the same situation wich caused me to fail the Smog test. High idle on neutral sounded like crap.
I was told to replace the CAT the EGR redo the pistons and so on...
After some research I run my car toburn all of the fuel in the tank.
REFUELED with PREMIUM as i had previously used REGULAR , guess what? The idle drop to a perfect
silent and smooth Two degrees down, i drove to the
Test and Passed it. Best of luck.

Response From dmac0923 Top Rated Answer

well you would be the best judge as to wether or not it needs a tune up. when was the last time it had one??????

are there any check engine lights on in the dash?

seems like you had a whole bunch of problems together

the popping noise was indeed the suspension components
the screeching noise was probably your serpentine belt, and im guessing your power steering pump probably seized up since there is no fluid in it. Power steering leaks only stop leaking when all the fluid has leaked out. (try saying that 3x fast)

as far as the engine idle/accel problems
check airfilter
plugs
wires
fuel filter
engine/trans mounts (more for rough idle shaking the car)

Response From Guest

thanks so much for your reply
honestly i have no idea when the car last had a tune up or even an oil change, i haven't had but a few weeks
another person mentioned about checking for a puddle of oil under the distributor;the oil looks fine and hardly uses any at all, i've seen no "puddles"
but i guess the smartest thing would be to have all of the basics checked and go from there
which i should have done in the first place, i'll admit.
thanks again
