How do you stop a power steering leak in a Volvo?

I am experiencing a power steering leak and need to know how to stop it.

They have a stop leak for the power steering at your local auto parts store. Just pour it in and then replace the rest of your power steering fluid. It should work within a couple of hours.

Obviously the first thing to do is to determine what is leaking. Lines are typically the culprit but pump can have seals go bad over time. Once you find the problem simply replace the damaged part or parts.

well if the leak is just on the line of the low pressure side of the power steering system then it could be fixed with some jb weld.

There are stop leak products that you can add to your power steering fluid that are available at most stores that carry auto servicing products. If the leak is severe then you may need to replace one of the pressure hoses, a seal in the power steering pump or maybe the power steering pump itself.
