  1. DIY: Power Steering High Pressure line repair

    1st Gen (2003-2007)
    I didn't see any issues with adding old hardware to new hardware nor issue with getting the new setup back together properly. Though, I bought mine from Autozone which had it all together already.

    The job is not hard and pretty direct like changing oil. Straight mechanical. However, its a job you can easily cut corners to make the job easier for yourself. When the job is done, if tested, you wont have an issue no matter who you go with. The problem is longevity and everything needs to...
  3. How To -- High Pressure Power Steering Hose

    1st Gen (2003-2007)
    great feedback and spot on with everything. I did all my work on a cold engine and I'm glad there is no o-ring between hard/soft line. Yea the picture idea is definitely recommended as I spent a lot of trial and error trying to remember how the fitment was. Regarding fitment, don't force...
  4. How To -- High Pressure Power Steering Hose

    1st Gen (2003-2007)
    Can you see where the leak is coming from? Tighten all areas, even if you have to use an adjustable wrench, just try not to strip anything. I'm assuming its leaking at either the hardline to driver side steering column, the banjo bolt (next to sensor) or the right angle connection from soft...
  5. How To -- High Pressure Power Steering Hose

    1st Gen (2003-2007)
    Hey guys, sorry for late reply. Was busy doing things on other car. I didn't torque ANYTHING. The first post discusses torques. The piece I purchased from autozone was 1 piece. I did not disconnect anything and its highly possible the o-ring that I felt did not fit the tip (the one that...
  6. How To -- High Pressure Power Steering Hose

    Correction . Have 106k miles. Anyway, day 2 and took the car on local and highway roads. No noises, no issues so far. Reservoir sitting in the same place. AutoZone kit seems good but you have to reuse bracket that mounts to back off engine, rubber gasket on end of hard line, and sensor.
  7. How To -- High Pressure Power Steering Hose

    1st Gen (2003-2007)
    OMG, I just did this job and it is not pretty the first time but you swear up and down you will spend way less time the second round. Trickiest part for me was getting that stupid banjo bolt in (took many many tries, prayers, and a lot of patience. The hardline on the other side was a project...

    Wow them speakers are small bit they pound stock. What are they 7's?
  9. Step by step - do your own brakes

    Great tutorial. I've changed brakes on other cars. Glad to see its not much different on this. Anyone ever deal with tirerack rotors? Such a heavy car, I think it needs better rotors to begin with.
  10. Spark Plug Replacement (how-to)

    Wow, definitely a bigger task than the older Maxima's. Just curious how often these plugs need to be changed. Currently have 99k miles. Definitely looking to go platinum or with whichever plugs has the longest interval.
  11. Oil analysis - Blackstone Laboratories

    Thanks for the details. I have an 03 Murano with 99k miles. Just picked up last month. I'm a little nervous to switch to Synthetic. Truck will definitely get less than 7k miles a year. Maybe even less than 6k. I didnt know if I should stick with a regular oil (Castrol GTX 5W-30 or Mobil 1...
  12. Rear sensors

    Definitely looking to add this as well. Thanks for all the research done in the past.
