Steering fluid in 2001 monte Carlo

The steering fluid pump reservoir has a leak ive been told by my trusted mechanic. The first bout of cold below freezing weather, the steering fluid drains out and I have to refill it. After refilling, I’ll have to fill it again in a few days sometimes lasts a few weeks. Might not have the car for much longer. Looking for suggestions of how to cope with this rather than get a (expensive I was told) new steering pump.

Get a used pump from a junkyard. Power steering pump failures are uncommon, you’ll be able to find a cheap pump that’ll last forever.

There are a number of products that claim to stop minor leaks in the power steering system. The one by Lucas is recommended, as well those made by Bar’s and Rislone. Buy a bottle of the stuff at an auto parts store. Give it a try.
