Power Steering Question
OK, granted this is not a cruiser, it's a GM. Yuk... but i am looking for some advice.
My roommate's car's power steering is acting up... the fluid smells TOASTED, like very burned, and the rack is leaking a little bit. I am hesitant to recommend replacing the fluid because of my experiences with automatic trannys... but he is about to take it on a long trip, and it does smell pretty bad.
so my questions are:
Change fluid or not.. will the detergents in the new fluid break up the bad goo like an auto tranny? does power steering fluid have detergents?
Should i dare try the stop leak crap?
sorry for the non cruiser content..
