Hi, Craig. Yup, had AAA tow it off to Al this morning. After filling the PS reservoir last night, when I came out this morning, it was empty again, puddle on the driveway. Spoke to Phil, he said given the high pressure in that line, it would just blow out another refill right away, so no sense in messing around. I was waiting for the tow, and put in a couple of glugs of Pentosin. It was gone in a few seconds after I started the car. But it was worth half a can of that stuff (expensive, if you need it in a hurry...) to make sure it wasn't something stupid like never checking the fluid level...
Not a cheap repair, as most likely it's the lower line that's corroded away, necessitating dropping the subframe.
