Me?

Hopefully just a loose hose clamp. I don't think it has leaked after I tightened it. It was almost empty though. Not good.

I bought Valvoline ATF Dextron Mextron for it. I'm contemplating draining it and refilling since I have no idea what is in there (I've never refilled it) nor how old it is.

Why not use power steering fluid from local store?

Land Rover recommends ATF Dextron IID. I'd go with that or whatever the more experienced on this board recommends.

Install a transmission cooler in line. It will prolong the life of your new steering box. Heat breaks them down.

Can I bleed the system without starting it up? Workshop manual says not to start the vehicle if its below the dipstick... which it currently is. How hard is it to bleed it? I would like to start fresh but not sure if its worth the effort.
