#1632 of 2519 2000 Quest - Loss of power steering
Nov 24, 2004 (11:44 pm)
My 2000 GXE has 89,000 miles. I experience intermittent loss of Power Steering - the steering becomes very heavy for a couple of minutes. This happens only say once in 3 or 4 weeks. I also have very noisy/squeaky belts. Not sure which belt is making the noise. The noise is more pronounced on rainy/cloudy days.
The Nissan dealer says I should replace the PS pump along with Steering rack. Total cost: $1600.
I had a gas station mechanic shop inspect the van.
They recommend that I replace all my after-market belts -PS, A/C and water pump along with PS fluid flush. The dealer said that my PS belt is tight.
I am confused. Any feedback or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

My 98 nissan quest is stuck in park. and yes i know you have to step on the brake. Was working fine till this morning. Any help would be appreciated.

Switching the key to the "off" position (one click after you insert the key.) You should the be able toshift to neutral without stepping on the brake. Then you can start the car and shift. At least then you can drive it. If this works It's probably the switch that releases the shifter when you step on the brake. If this doesn't work my guess is it's a transmission issue.

Some of y'all should post over in the Got a Quick, Technical Question discussion over in Maintenance and Repair too; there are some techs who hang out over there who give out non-stop repair advice.

What would cause the front brakes to make rattling noises?

Sometimes, replacement front pads will rattle.
