    Power steering cooler leaking in radiator

    My 1999 Firehawk has the factory installed power steering cooler...it's been leaking power steering fluid in into the radiator and the engine coolant is now full of power steering fluid...Any one else experienced this? Do I need the whole radiator replaced? The pontiac and chevy dealerships around here have no idea what im talking about and just want me to bring it in. Any ideas?

    Probably just the power steering cooler itself, about $150

    No you will just need to flush your system and get all that power steering fluid out. I would flush it twice to make sure its all out.

    If it was not a Firehawk I would just get rid of the cooler unless you were out there running it in AutoCross every weekend.

    Since is a special edition car it would be hard to do anything but replace it. You can probably find some guy selling used ones on here or tech.

    Good Luck!
