    I thought I read a post that people were putting gear oil in the power steering. I think the problem with my ps is the oil gets super thin when hot. My ps works when it's cold and after I drive a bit it slowl y stops working!

    Lucas makes this thick power steering stop leak stuff, i've used it in the past, and it seems to work great.

    Yep just what 123c said. I've been having same problem too, but since I've been running the lucas stuff it's been a lot better and no more leaking.
