1998 Nissan Maxima 134,400 Miles My Nissan Maxima is a good car, but I am having several problems with it that needs to be fixed. I have a starting problem, which I think might be the starter. The car starts fine sometime, but at other times I have to start it 2 or 3 times. I also have a fluid leak that is coming from the right side of the car in the front. I see the power steering container is on that side, therefore it might be PS fluid.....Any ideas????? Is the starter a big problem on this generation Maxima(95-99)?

the starter is not too bad, here is a link for the estimator, but before you guess at what is wrong, have someone look at your car to really determine what is wrong. http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=2370 http://repairpal.com/directory?address=77833&car_brand_names=Nissan
At temperatures over 70 degrees, there's no ignition, no starter, no sound at all when I turn the key. I have to wait until the air temperature drops to get the engine started. It did this last sum...
My car runs and starts fine but if I drive it for 30mins or more and turn it off, it wont start. If I wait an hour or so it will. Problem didnt start till I jump started another car. Please help.
