Default Car newbie

Hey guys. My name'* Wes. I've got a 1991 Buick Park Avenue that currently has a problem with the Power steering fluid leaking. A friend and I have concluded that it'* probably the Power steering cooler that'* been rusted through. That friend directed me to come to these forums to say Hi and give a small description of my problem to see if you guys had any thoughts or advice on the matter. Any help or input would be appreciated. Thanks again, guys.

-Wes

I already found the part on rock auto. Half the fins on the little radiator that the power steering lines run through are rusted off. It was pretty wet to. I'm thinking a whole power steering cooler line assembly swap will fix the problem. Never changed one before but it looks simple enough. One screw holding the radiator on, and find out how both of the lines disconnect.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Much appreciated. I'll be sure to post future problems in the correct area, and just posted the current one here with my introduction cause Ymmot told me to, lol. Anywho, I'll get pics up soonish, and hopefully I'll be able to get the part I need and Ymmot and I can get it installed soon.
