    heres the breakdown, my friend has a 1990 toyota celica . Well today was the coldest day of the year in my town and when she drove her car it appeared to leak power steering fluid, i have heard before that cold weather can actully shrink seals in older cars and cause them to leak, could this be the situation? can we just use some of that lucas "power steering stop a leak" , any input is greatly appreciated. thanks!

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Yeah it was kinda cold here the last few days. I'm not sure if it is the cold weather causing this but it could be. Yeah I think you should try adding some more fluid and go from there, I also wonder if it is leaking because of It's age and usage? And keep checking for leaks after adding the new fluid but don't drive if It's low or if it has completely drained.

    Maybe someone can chime in on this too.
