I have a 2007 Nissan Murano. When cold it will scream and moan. When it warms up it is quite. It got to where recently it felt like I lost some of my power steering power. While the engine was at operation temperate, I checked the fluid level and it was at full hot. I thought belt, pulley, or worse case the pump itself.
I took it in today and they stated that I need a new hose. While I never had any problems with this shop. I just not sure about that. No fluid lost so it isn’t leaking from pump or a hose.
So how could a hose go bad and not send enough pressure and fluid to the rack. Wouldn’t a bad hose need a good pump if there is a crack in the hose to cause it to spray or leak from the hose. Wouldn’t you need a good pump to provide pressure and fluid to the rack? So if the pump is going wouldn’t that cause the same symptoms. I just can’t think of a way that a hose would be bad without some signs. O ring goes or hose cracks there is a leak then and lost of fluid.
Any thoughts, thank you
