its a 98 EL, the leak is coming from the pump itself. The bottom of the pump always has oil on it

Probably be easiest to by a reco pump and replace it. Most of the leaks I've seen are from the pump assembly seal, the big one on the front.

You need to get the pully off to get that work done. In the end, be easiest to buy a reco and just replace it.

I do know where this a good second hand one if your interested though.

I've got an AU. The hose out the back of the pump was the cause of my leek. 100 mile an hour tape fixed my leek. Just like new! It's had the tape on there for 3 months now. The resevior has not lost a drop of fluid. Quick fix leek stopper!
