Default Power Steering Leak?

I am getting a small oily spot on my garage floor about the size of a nickle, overnight.
Very little liquid. My mechanic put it up on the rack and told me the power steering pump/connections seemed to be seeping a little fluid, but it was nothing to be concerned about because it was so little. Do you agree. What should I do?
Thanks,
Bill

It doesn't sound bad enough to warrant immediate repairs, so just keep on eye on it and maintain your fluid level. It may seal up on it own. However; if it get'* worse then you will want to tear into it.

Default Leak?

Someone suggested Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak. I bought a bottle, removed about 4-5 oz. of PS fluid and added the same amount of Lucas. Do you know if that'* about right?
Thanks,
Bill

I've never used the product. Follow the direction on the container and it just might work.
