PS reservoir overflowing with green fluid?
So I sprung some sort of leak a few weeks ago that had me filling the power steering reservoir every day or so. Then I decided to give Lucas' PS Stop Leak a shot before doing anything more invasive.
Now, I exchanged the PS fluid many months ago and it is indeed clear from the bottle. The Lucas I added this week is as red as lightly used transmission fluid.
Tonight when I went out to check on the fluid level, I saw that not only was it totally full, but that the reservoir had burped up green fluid everywhere through the cap.
Now, I'm no color expert or anything but I'm pretty sure clear and red do not green make.
Any idea what's going on?
I'll snap a picture in the morning.
