It's ran in New York where he only runs it from when the road salt is gone which is about early May until maybe mid October. He likes 30w Pennzoil yellow bottle but he's not sure it has enough zinc in it.

I agree, it looks like the Ac compressor for sure. It engages when it should, but with a loud clunk, normal? IDK. Ill be honest I am a little worried because I dont have any money to get this fixed. And I am in the FL summer.

I agree that it is the ac compressor in the picture. A compressor can leak a little oil.....does the ac work? If the ac works and the power steering level doesn't go down, I wouldn't worry about it just yet.

Purolator uses both the crimped metal seam and the glued seam, it depends on the model of the filter. We have seen tears in both, but metal crimped seams have shown way more tears. The V-spread on the one you posted up here isn't really very bad.
