OK you know the problem but is it something as simple as replacing the Power steering hose or as complicated as also needing a new power steering pump also? Look at where its leaking to determine what needs replacing. Remember it just takes a little time to determine where its leaking. If you find that its not the hose leaking but its the power steering pump then follow these easy steps and save $100s doing it yourself:
1 Remove the negative battery cable with a wrench and place it aside. Remove the upper strut housing tie bar if necessary for access. Remove the power steering serpentine drive belt and electrical plug on the TFE off as applicable. Remove the lower bolt from the mounting bracket using a socket and ratchet if necessary for access. Take off the inlet and outlet hoses from the power steering pump. Remove the reservoir hose only on the supercharged engine. You will need a flat-head screwdriver for this task.
2 Place the power steering pump pulley so the bolts can be accessed through the hole in it. Remove the mounting bolts, using a socket and ratchet, through the hole in the pulley. Take the power-steering assembly out from the bracket. If necessary transfer the pulley to the new pump with a pulley puller.
3 Replace the power steering pulley assembly before you install the pump using the pulley-install tool from your kit. Start the power steering inlet hose connection to the pump by hand. Replace the power steering pump assembly to the engine. Replace the lower bolt first, making sure the hose and heater pipe have enough clearance so they do not touch. If the two rub together they will make noise after the installation is finished. Replace the outlet hose to the pump, directing the hose under the engine harness and the heater hose. If the engine is supercharged it will be necessary to connect the hose from the reservoir.
4 Torque the power steering gear inlet hose to 20 foot-pounds and the hose clamp at the pump to 15 inch-pounds. Torque the pump mounting bolts to 20 foot-pounds. If equipped with a TFE pump, attach the connection. Replace the power steering drive belt or serpentine belt if you removed either. Replace the upper strut tie bar and torque the nuts to 18 foot-pounds. Replace the negative battery cable and fill the power steering reservoir with fluid. Bleed the steering system by starting the engine and turning the steering wheel right and left until all the air is out.
Hi Augie, Sounds to me as if the steering system needs bleeding. Make sure the fluid level is correct and then seat yourself inside, start the engine and turn i=the steering wheel to full lock and hold it there for not more than three seconds repeat the operation turning the opposite lock. Keep doing that until the steering seems correct and then take the vehicle for wheel alignment. Regards John
LOCATE THE PUMP WHICH CONNECTS TO THE FAN BELT OR BELT COUPLE REMOVE THE BOLTS THAT TIES THE PUMP TO THE ENGINE BODY THEN REMOVING THE FLEXIBLE RUBBER PIPES HAVING METAL CONNECTORS AT THEIR END AND REPLACE IT BACK WITH ANOTHER PUMP AND RE DO THE FITTINGS. AFTER WORK DONE FILL THE POWER STEERING BOTTLE WITH THE HYDRAULIC POWER STEERING OIL AND RUN THE ENGINE. AIR WOULD MOVE OUT AND IF LEVEL STILL LOW TOP TO THE UPPER MARKINGS AND MOVE THE STEERING LEFT AND RIGHT WITH THE ENGINE ON. THEN INSPECT THOROUGHLY FOR ANY LEAKAGE. REMEMBER THE PRESSURE IS TREMENDOUS.
If its a 4cyl 2.0 remove your wheel and shield and using a jack and a bar and chain to hold up the motor from the top lay bar across from strut to strut and secure to engine, use a jack under the engine and add pressure to remove the motor mount on that side. loosen the alternator and power steering adjusters, remove belts starting with the Pwr steering then waterpump / alt install in reverse order .. do all of them while you are at it cause its a job.. First match the numbers on the belts with the new ones to make sure they are correct. Autozone always gets it wrong.then you could be stranded..
xus LS 400 and locate the power steering pump pulley, fluid reservoir and pump on the upper front driver side of the engine.
Connect the pulley remove tool to the front of the power
steering pulley. Brace the arms on the pulley tool on the **** of the
pulley. Connect the metal key in the middle of the pulley tool to the
nut in the middle of the pulley. Connect the power drill to the pulley
tool and pull the trigger to remove the pulley securing nut. Remove the
drive belt and the pulley.
Position the drain container under the power steering pump.
Remove the drain plug from the bottom of the pump using the metric
ratchet set. Let the fluid drain from the pump into the drain container.
Replace the drain plug to the bottom of the power steering pump.
Remove the securing bolts from the right and left side of the
reservoir and the pump using the metric ratchet set. Pull the pump
upward and disconnect the hose from the bottom of the pump using the
wrench. Pull the pump from the engine compartment.
Lower the new power steering pump into the engine
compartment. Reconnect the hose to the bottom of the power steering
pump. Position the new power steering pump onto the engine. Replace the
securing bolts the right and left side of the pump and reservoir.
Tighten the bolts using the metric ratchet set.
Replace the power steering pump pulley the opposite way that you removed it. Reconnect the drive belt.
Fill the power steering pump reservoir with fresh power
steering fluid. Start the engine and rotate the steering wheel to
circulate the new power steering fluid. I no i gave you directions on how to remove the whole power steering pump question is the pully loose or are you wanting to just change a belt good luck happy holidays

Turn the ignition switch ON, and access the “miscellaneous” screen.
Select the “re-learn cam/crank” option, then follow the instructions on the scan tool screen.
The power steering pump is normally connected or driven by the engine with a V-belt. A loose belt can cause squealing as soon as the power steering come under load (e.g. steering left or right while stopped).
Check the tension on the V-belt directly connected to the power steering pump. This may need replacement.
Just went to a dealer today for my 2000 regal. It took them a while, but they showed me where my power steering cap was.
It is black and very hard to see. You need a small flashlight (LED recommended), and then need to look on the left side behind the engine and in front of where the glove box is. WAY down, under some hoses, and adjacent to the engine is the power steering cap (I'd estimate about 8-10" down). The best way to see it is to lean into the engine from the front while standing to the left of the center of the car. Lean forward and place the flashlight pointing down and slightly to the left behind the engine and at a level just below the block. Good luck!!
