Thank you, Ron, your kind words are really appreciated.

Sadly, not all my photos are viewable, due to this:

Yes, it is a Good idea, because you already have the spare part handy, but you don't have time to do such a swap; so, in the meantime, while you can get at it, you can try the Brake Fluid trick, let it run for a couple of days, and then report here if you noticed any change in the leakage behaviour.

Remember: this trick works on worn seals only.
So, if the leakage is due to another cause, such like a cracked hose, it will never help to reduce or stop the leakage.

Thank you for writing,
Kind Regards.

From your comments the other thread:

"We are not working as lawyers anymore... Instead of working as Lawyer, now I manage the Storage and Distribution of different hardware and bulky items, delivering them in big Trucks to different places as required. I'll try to access internet at least once per week."
"I kindly suggest you to see less TV, less social media, drink less alcoholic beverages, smoke less; to avoid wasting your precious time and resources in empty things; and fill the hearts of every member of your family, with your presence, your warm heart, the things that you do together; you know... with spiritual things. Material things will never fill your immaterial soul.
Sorry for this long letter, but I wanted to explain the reason why I am not visiting often my Facebook, nor the automotive web forums I used to... somehow I noticed that my daughter was growing too fast, and I decided to shut off my "Virtual Life" online, as much as I could; in order to spend all the quality time I can, with my Daughter, my wife, and the rest of my family. "
I totally agree! Enjoy the beautiful mountains and family! Life goes by!

Share online only what you really think is important, kind of like in old times of film photography... I personally hate the direction that all the Internet is going now, they teased us with free "goodies" and now, when we became addicted, those companies show their true face - greed and more greed.

So it goes...

Thumbs up Awesome Magic Trick!

Regarding this recent post about pouring an ounce of Brake Fluid to a Leaky power steering system:

Definitely, this trick has some hidden science behind...
More than two years so far, and the system recently started to leak a couple of drops per week

Awesome!

Kind Regards.
For two years, my lazy-ass trick worked well, but the hydraulic steering rack's seals decided to restart the leakage, and I am not at the best moment to find and buy a good used hydraulic steering rack at the local junk yards, and do the Swap.

Also, the only car part when I have failed flat-on-my-face to successfully repair, is leaky hydraulic steering racks, all the ones that I've tried to repair, ends equally leaking or even worse, no matter if I use brand new seals from the original car brand, or aftermarket ones; so I really dislike to repair hydraulic steering racks; I prefer to Swap 'em... but I can't obtain another one soon.

So, I decided to give to this lazy-ass trick, a second chance; and this time I poured more than two ounces of Wagner's DOT3 non-synthetic Brake Fluid, to an almost full Power Steering fluid's reservoir, while engine was at idle, just minutes prior to start a 420 miles trip, hoping to not need to be refilling the reservoir with power steering fluid during the Trip, nor running out of power steering fluid...

...and the Magic happened once again!

The thing hasn't leaked a single drop in said trip, nor in this two whole weeks since I poured the Brake Fluid to the Power Steering Fluid;

Talking

The trick consists in basic science: The Brake Fluid Swells the Rubber Seals while softening 'em; just the contrary from what age and usage does to them: Shrinking and Hardening.

I'll update regarding this, as soon as anything new, happens; but the "KiaStein" keeps working Flawlessly, thanks to God.

Kind Regards.

Always something new from a guy that has to keep things going in Honduras
North Americans usually only think "auto parts stores" or scrap a car that needs only a couple hundred dollars to bring it back to a reliable vehicle...
I like the saying "One man's junk is another man's gold"

Dear friend David, I would not have described it better even if I wanted to.

This kia sephia has been almost a decade with us, and is about to reach the two decades of age; and I had the honor of rescuing it from the trash, because in the United States it had the salvage title certificate issued, and we bring it here to Honduras, giving it a second chance in life

Kind Regards.

Talking No Centercaps anymore.

Since we moved from the Big city, to a small mountain town, on the Rural Honduras; our cars became hard working animals and tend to be dustier, dirtier than before... but they're doing great; thanks to God.

However, someone tried to steal the center caps from the 15" wheels on the "KiaStein" and damaged a little the lid on the side; so, I decided to remove all the four center caps and... Somehow I Love the Look of those ICW wheels without their center caps, I've only purchased sixteen brand new chromed nuts to make 'em look uniform, and Voilá, they look better without their center caps because with them, they looked more like hubcaps than wheels, and I dislike hubcaps.



Sorry for the low quality of my cheapo cellphone's camera photos.



Despite that these ICW wheels are made in USA, their center caps are made in Taiwan.

I repaired and stored them, the wheels / car looks much better without them.

Kind Regards.
