Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Power steering fluid
Check the fluid level in the reservoir.
The fluid level should be checked when the fluid is cold at fluid temperatures of 32 to 86ºF (0 to 30ºC). 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 A and MIN B lines.
If the fluid is below the MIN B line, add Genuine NISSAN E-PSF or equivalent. Remove the cap and fill through the opening.
Power steering fluid is poisonous and should be stored carefully in marked containers out of the reach of children.
- DO NOT OVERFILL.
- Use of a power steering fluid other than Genuine NISSAN E-PSF or equivalent will prevent the power steering system from operating properly.
