Default PS Rack leak

Has anyone considered running some kind of PS ATF stop-leak though the PS system? Is this even a thing? Wonder if folks use ATF trans stop-leak in racks?


Edit: I'm just curious to know. Probably not a good idea even if it does exist.

When something's broken, you fix it, not pour snot into it and hope it magically goes away.

For the record, I tried that stuff out of boredom on my 03 c5z. didn't fix the slow leak no matter how much I put in.

Thought that would be the case - lol.

Thanks for the insight, I was wondering if it was even a thing.

You're but a n00blet, search "mouglie" and be prepared to laugh.

I bought my XJ for $500 because it had a coolant leak, so they poured a bunch of stop leak in it and it clogged the radiator, causing it to overheat and blow the head gasket and then cracked the head. The leak was a $12 hose.
