Nissan 200-SX Power Steering Leak

Q. Dear Sir, I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions. I have a 1986 Nissan 200-SX that is leaking power steering fluid. I can visually see the leakage around the steering gear assembly. My questions is, would the stop leak product work in this case? I've been unemployed for while and short on money. What if I just ignore the leakage? I know I will not have power steering, but would it affect rest of the car?

Thank you again for your time.

Nissan 200-SX Power Steering Leak

A. That is a very common place for all steering racks, not just nissans, to leak. And a power steering rack for your car, from Nissan, is over $1300.00.

It is not a very fast leak so keeping the power steering fluid level up will keep you in power steering for a while.
