View Full Version : Power Steering Failure

Hey You guys,

I have a question and I hope that there is still some poeople
reading the yahoo posts.

My other car is a 1998 Nissan Maxima for starters. I was driving up
to Las Vegas this New Year and found myself dodgin another car
around one of the curves on the highway. Needles to say I ended
locking up the car and spinnig out of control. I was not worried
about crashing and burning but took more attention to the fact that
after I started the car back up again the power steering was
completly out.

Does anyone know of any reason that would have happen? How about
something that has to be reset after the car spun out? I already
thought about power steering line and there were no leaks, and I
have not been able to get to the pump? The motor is fine and was
more than happy to bring me home but my balance and alignment are
also off because the car shakes like crazy and one of my tires is
practically bald.

The other thing is that the dealership is quite a bit aways from my
house and I dont know if I will continue to damage the vehicle and
its components if I continue to drive it in the conditions that it
currently is.

Any suggestions or help will be HIGHLY appreciated and helpful.
