First start the truck up and see if their is vaccum on that line, if it does their is a sticker under
the hood that has a vaccum diagram follow it to find where the line goes ,if their is no vaccum to line then does the truck have head light washers it also could goto you main washers to the windshield push the washer button and see if it leakes washer fluid.
If it is antifreeze could be a head gasket, cracked head, leaking heater hose. If it is water then your rain drainage around the wiper linkage is plugged up. If it is washer fluid you have a break in the washer fluid line. Someone who knows what he is looking for is going to have to put his hands and eyes on the car
first check where it's leaking from, if water dropping near front wheel it's leaking from tank first check the rubber grommet for both washer motor 1 wiper washer motor and 2 head light washer motor, both are in the water tank, if your car water dropping from front end under the front bumper it should leaking from washer nozzle in this case need to replace the head light washer nozzle. some time leaking from hose if you check from underneath you can see where it's leaking from,
The washer fluid is held in a plastic tank, which can crack and leak. It is carried to the sprayers by rubber hoses, which can crack, split, and leak. You can try to take a peek up under the car and see if you can see a disconnected on ruptured washer hose. Try filling it back up with regular water and you should be able to tell where its coming from.
Generally.....3 things happen. The washer fluid plastic bottle may be cracked....not likely. The pump (and or gasket at the pump) may be leaking ......30%. The rubber hose pushed onto the pump to direct the washer fluid up to the window may have popped off........70% ......most likely.
"The leak" is probably not the pump. A closer inspect might reveal a bad hose, hose fitting or worse yet the "rack" has a bad seal. Who ever diagnosed the leak did not look close enough to verify the source of the leak. The washer story sounds suspect too.
I would take a small inspection mirror ( 1" or so in diameter), and look with a focused flahlite on exactly the drips of power sterring fluid are cming from. Some reputabile shops have a UV dye and use a black light to trace,,, but a good sarp eye and searching will spot the source leak.
Then you need to take the hose or part to the NAPA , or your choice parts store and save the money a shop or dealer would charge...
dont know of any head gasket concerns, usually when the intake manifold leaks it either split and pours out or the heater hose fittings crack and leak. Check the hose connections at the intake and make sure none of the hose clamps have cracked and are leaking
