    Lend me some advice, concerning the power steering pump

    Hey guys, ever since i have had my car, I always notice that its wet around the filler to my PS pump.I clean it up all the time. but i was inspecting my alternator the other day and noticed that the PS fluid has been leaking on it. i never pulled it off the car when i did my motor swap, i simple unbolted the bracket and zip tied it off to the side. i'm not sure what i'm looking for as far as where its leaking. is there an after market one i can look into buying? maybe one that looks and performs better then the stocker. i don't road race it so i'm not lacking any performance from the PS pump. but i'm one of those kinda people that if something needs to be changed i go for the next one up the food chain.

    I'm in the same boat. The bitch is leaking all over my driveway. Looks like both of us will be having some fun this weekend!
