Testimonial: "ok the turning side to side worked for a minute and stopped the squealing but then it dropped the fluid again. i couldn't see a leak in lines and it appears to be coming from the bottom. been through four quarts today trying."

SOURCE: Power steering fluid leaking.
Year and mileage? Keep the fluid level up so you don't damage the power steering pump, and return to the garage that serviced it. This sounds like something wasn't tightened properly, and they should correct the problem. It is possible that a power steering hose or the pump itself developed a leak, but, it is most likely something that wasn't tightened properly. That's the best diagnosis that can be given w/out actually being able to see the vehicle.

Does it make the growling noise when the fluid is at the correct level? If it does, the noise is a warning that your power steering pump needs to be replaced.

Are you sure you are looking at the belt that is squealing? Usually the alternator belt squeals when first starting engine, PS belt will squeal when turning the steering wheel all the way right or left. It the tensioner is maxed out, either the belt is stretched, worn out, or way overtightened.

I have the same problem with 05 XC90 2.5T.. It seems like there is a problem with the power steering pump. And the only way to fix it is to change the pump. Now i'm trying to use the lucas stop leaking thing as well and will see what happens.
