Default Re: uh oh... hydraulic oil leak hst

I knew we'd lost some fluid, but had no idea how much. Assumed was a quart or 2. Went to the dealer and was going to get a couple of quarts, but got 2.5 gallons instead. Started adding and checking dipstick. At 5 qts, I figured we HAD to be close. At 9, we finally registered on the dipstick. I'm amazed the thing would still move.

I guess the seal will have to be monitored- I didn't take it off and it clearly had fluid on it. I just tapped it in. I guess we'll see how long it holds.
