    Well ya dude! Replacing 75 cent crush washers is too complicated.

      I don't even need to say it but keep stop leak away from your E30.

      The value just went down quite a bit to anyone who knows that fact and may be interested in buying the car.

        When you neglect to properly repair and maintain a car, it ends up costing you more money later down the road, not to mention how well the car performs and operates.

          Agreed. That's the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Hell, even a good used hose and some new crush washers, and you're back on the road-- leak free even!

            I didn't buy the stop leak. I meant the power steering fluid I have has stop leak in it.... Honestly I'll be replacing the pump and hose anyway. Its old enough I might as well.

                Ok that was funny. One of those power steering delete things wouldn't be a bad idea though. Wasnt someone selling then on R3VLimited?

                          Ugh, I hate this mentality. Here's an idea, learn how to fix things properly. What a concept, fixing things on your stock e30, CRAAAAZY TALK!! Do not put stop leak in power steering fluid, that's fucking stupid. If you can't afford to buy new shit, find a good used unit. Don't be Toes, be smart.

                            Thanks for the advice Mlarsen, ill avoid Power steering fluid that includes stop leak in it from now on. I've got the cash but I was keeping it in reserve in case of a big problem.

                            Until then I think ill at least order a new hose and washer and see if that helps. I think most of the leak is coming from the bottom of the reservoir and not from the pump itself.

                              No power steering fluid comes with stop leak in it......

                              BTW, you should be using ATF for your PS fluid, anyway.
