    I don't have the manual, but I just found one online...

    It calls for GM power steering fluid. Do I need OE fluid, or will aftermarket fluids mix well?

    i wouldnt mix. why do you need PS fluid ?? are you leaking/loosing fluid if so..address that problem first..then flush and replace the fluid with OE...aftermarket p.s fluid is as useless as blinker fluid

    I think it's leaking through my cap as the pump has oil on it. Where can I purchase a new cap?

    I stopped at NAPA and saw some Valvoline that says it complies with GM's 1 quart PS fluid #1050017, so I put that in.

    I would just check to see that there is no dirt or anything under the lil rubber gasket...
