"Stop leak" for power steering is much thicker fluid then normal one. It can give you some effect on stopping leak, but can (I recon will) kill your gearbox soon.
From where is gearbox leaking?

Oh damn! I'm not sure where it's leaking from it's hard to get under the car when I don't have a proper Jack lol, the box is already rooted I'm just saving the funds to do a manual conversion and just wanted a quick fix on the auto so I can stop making a mess on my driveway.
Thanks guys

I had similar problem with PSS (start leaking badly through contacts) after put in "stop leak" fluid. Mileage when it happened was not recorded.
