Nissan Altima: Power steering
The power assisted steering uses a hydraulic pump, driven by the engine, to assist steering. If the engine stops or the drive belt breaks, you will still have control of the vehicle. However, much greater steering effort is needed, especially in sharp turns and at low speeds.
If the engine is not running or is turned off while driving, the power assist for the steering will not work. Steering will be harder to operate.
