Nissan Altima Owners Manual: Power steering fluid

Check the fluid level in the reservoir.


Check the fluid level in the reservoir.

The fluid level should be checked when the fluid is cold at fluid temperatures of 0 to 30ºC (32 to 86ºF). The fluid level can be checked with the level gauge which is attached to the cap. To check the fluid level, remove the cap. The fluid level should be between the MAX 1 and MIN 2 lines.

If the fluid is below the MIN 2 line, add Genuine NISSAN E-PSF. Remove the cap and fill through the opening.

CAUTION

● Do not overfill.

● Use of a power steering fluid other than Genuine NISSAN E-PSF will prevent the power steering system from operating properly.

● Power steering fluid is poisonous and should be stored carefully in marked containers out of the reach of children.
