Mine leaked at the supply pressure hose and no additive on earth would help that. I replaced the hose and problem solved.

I don't believe in these so called stop leak formula's as a permanent fix. I can guarantee your dealer will say the same thing. Some people say it worked some people say it didnt. I would wait and see what your dealer says before you add any stop leak formula's. The chemicals in the power steering stop leak just cause the rubber seals to swell up to stop the leak but I've heard that the wrong type can cause serious issues with the pump (foaming, bubbling, etc)

How would the dealer know what was or where it was leaking, thus determining what to repair or replace, if the miracle additive temporarily stops the leak?

The stop leak attacks the rubber parts in the system and may cause a catastrophe later on.
