    I'm not a fan of "stop leak" products... Fix the problem properly and stick to your normal fluids.

    Do you have any more info on where or what's leaking? Is there a puddle? Pictures?

    About a year ago I flushed my power steering pump and it stopped making a whine.

    I looked under the front of the truck where all that stuff is and its dirty but not wet dirty.. so who knows.. maybe they can see something I cant while its on the rack.
