Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

Do you have a service engine soon light on when the engine is running?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No lights are on. I already paid $20 on my PayPal account.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Did you happen to replace the Idle air control valve on your car, some what recently?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, but does that have anything to do with the power steering? The drum & belt next to the engine on the passenger side is making noise that correlates with the steering problem.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

How is the power steering fluid level? What is the power steering doing? making noise? Hard to turn?

What kind of noise is it making? Screeching sound? Humming? Roaring?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
