power steering fluid leak, quick fix?
Posted 08 September 2003 - 05:41 PM
Concerning my 1998 OBW with 102,500 miles:
I've noticed a power steering fluid leak at the pump/reservoir. The fluid accumulates on the top of the block. It's a slow leak, and I only had to add a squirt of fluid once. It's not bad enough for me to go though the bother and potential expense of doing a proper fix, so what do ya'll think about that stop-leak/conditioner stuff? Does it work? Is it a ripoff? Can it cause damage to the system?
I haven't read any other complaints about a power steering fluid leak, so I feel kind of special.

If you still are leaking afterwards, it's either the seal on the pressurized line or the pump itself.
