Has power steering leak and local service person has advised to keep levels up for now. Went to local PEP Boys and found 20 different types of power steering fluids- some for high mileage cars , some for asian built cars, some that claim to stop leaks, some for $3.99 per pint and some for $15.00 per quart. What is best to look for???

The most cost effective and technically appropriate product for you is AutoZone Power Steering Fluid, part number AZPSF32. It is $5 a quart. I checked the specifications and it will work in your specific vehicle. Stop leak "additives", no matter what the application, are a waste of time and money, but most relevantly are almost never (with rare exceptions) a factory authorized, recognized or professional procedure to repair a leak. If you desire that the power steering leak that you have be repaired by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a power steering leak inspection/repair and the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you.
