Power Steering Leak from Pitman Arm. HELP!
I posted this once but never saw the thread so i'm gonna give this another try.
1992 Merc Grand Marquis LS w/ Tow
It has been leaking (sometimes heavily) power steering fluid directly from the pitman arm. The entire pump was replaced due to a bad diagnosis from my friend the "mechanic". lol.
Just this week I completely drained the power steering fluid and refilled it with some Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak and some regular fluid. Problem remains the same.
Is this something I can fix myself? It's a 92 so it's not in my best interest to dump a bunch of money into it but I love this car.
Should I try adding more stop leak fluid?
Also, i'm not sure if this problem is fixed yet but over time, maybe a couple weeks, I have to raise the car and bleed the lines because they are dry for some reason. Could it be a clog in my line that is causing fluid to come out of the pitman arm? This is why the pump was replaced originally.
I'm at a loss here. Any help or information is appreciated!
