try checking the drive axles for run-out or the front shocks for wear or weak springs may be the problem.
All of which may not be visible with just a general inspection
#6 of 14 2004 Quest Clunk Noise in Front End
Jan 10, 2008 (8:52 am)
I have a 2004 Quest with 58k on it. At about 30K, it started making a clunking noise when the car was started forward with the steering wheel adjusted for a turn. The dealer tried things 3 times, without any effect:lemon:. Still does it and the dealer says "live with it" and I guess I'll have to. Any ideas?

What did the dealer do to try to fix the problem?

#9 of 14 Replacing Power Steering Fluid

We heard a low, heavy clicking when we turn the wheel sharp so we decided to change the power steering fluid.
The thudding turned into squealing and we realized we probably put the wrong power steering fluid in.
Does anyone know the "right" power steering fluid to put in? We have a 1995 Nissan Quest.

The real question we're trying to ask here is that we have been told that it's very possible that what The '95 Quest actually uses as it's "power steering fluid" is transmission fluid. This would jive with what we siphoned out of the power steering reservoir because it was a reddish color (rather than clear like the power steering fluid we put in). Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance!

Nissan recommends Type F automatic transmission fluid for my '99 Quest's power steering fluid.

Type F Automatic Transmission fluid seems to be the direction that everyone is going in, so I'll take that is a golden recommendation.
Will post if I find out anything different.

The owners manual says to use type f automatic transmission fluid. Regular power steering fluid has probably ruined the seals in your system. You're looking at about $400.00 just for parts if you do it yourself. Sorry, double because I didn't read the manual until it was too late myself. Wonder how many pumps and steering gears nissan has sold with this trick!
