That could be possible but I would cheek to make sure the resivervoir is not leaking. Especily if your re-used the old one. I responded to your other post befor i saw this one. It is very easy to miss a leak in the resiveroir because of the way they did the plastic weld from the factory. Hopefully some one else with more experince can answer your question about the stop leak. I have never used anyting like that. I alway belived that if it is designed to plug a leak then it is probibly going to plug something else that you do not want to get pluged. It's nasty shit and is always more trouble than it's worth so I never mess with it. Good Luck!

Maybe a dumb ? but where is the puddle forming? Is it under the rack, under the pump? Get her up on jack stands (be safe tho) and have someone fire it up while you're under it.. Have them move the wheel lock to lock and see if you can locate the leak. It's very possible the rack is damaged. Are any of the rack boots torn? Any hard lines kinked or ends twisted? Can easily happen when tightening a new line. Did you clear the line before installing it? Even a new line can have shit in it. Especially if someone took it out of it's box, dropped it in the dirt, then realized they had the wrong one and returned it. Unless the stop leak had solids in it I don't see how it could have effected it much. But I guess anything is possible. When I had my PS pump replaced under warranty they kept it over night and let it drain for quite a while to make sure there was no air trapped in the lines or rack..
Could even be a line is cross threaded too.

Hey almost forgot.. Did you pound the pulley on to the pump? Bad news if you did. PS pumps don't like being beat on..

ya that is very true.. you never know what your going to get. I've been lucky so far and it hasn't failed YET.
one word of advice to anyone replacing their ps pump. make sure you put a new o ring on the threaded tube and tighten that thing down good and tight. I didn't torque very tight and I leaked a whole bunch of fluid onto my alternator
