If it's leaking past the input shaft you can get a re-seal kit for about $25. I pulled my box and had a shop install the kit for $50. It fixed my leak for about 9 months and then started leaking again - I guess the shaft is just plain worn. I've tried all the additives and sealers and they haven't worked for me. Right now I just add fluid every 3 days to keep from frying the pump.
If it is leaking from the lower seal, its a pretty easy fix. I did mine last weekend, got a lower seal kit from NAPA for $11, rented a pitman arm puller for $6, and 20 minutes later the leak was completly fixed.
I fixed the leak last weekend , however, it wasn't the powersteering box ,it was the pump leaking on to the box and the fluid dripping off the bottom of the box............the rebuild kit for the pump/resovoir combo was $10 ...............easy fix , thanks for all the responses ................I learned something though, things are not always as they appear................I can park anywhere again , no leaks!
