I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5s the
steering is getting harder and harder and
my tie rods are fine and I believe my u
joints are fine as well as my power steering
Does the rack leak? Is the fluid old?
It doesn't leak but the fluid might be old not sure how to drain it tho
You can do it 2 ways. Get a turkey baster and suck out as much of the reservoir as possible and add new then do this about 4 times within 2 weeks and most of the old will be out. Or, follow the return line down and take the clamp off and let it drain out. Put hose back on and refill with recommended fluid most of the time listed on cap. The second option will get more out but will also probably introduce air in the system so you will have to bleed out the system by letting it run and slowly turning the steering wheel from lock to lock a few times.
