Dont mean to bring this back from the dead, but I just discovered a small leak on the hose when I was underneath changing the oil yesturday. Im going to do this now, but was curious why we are using an ATF as opposed to power steering fluid? Thanks

And while I'm here, I'll just go ahead and repeat what everyone else has said:
  • Great writeup...

  • Nice car...
