The leak is probably from one of the hoses, you will only here squealing if the steering box gets air into it, not hearing any noise is a good thing at this point, just be sure to keep fluid in the reservoir to keep air out, just don't over fill it. First, try any over the counter power steering stop leaks from any auto parts store, 9 times out of 10 that won't fix you problem, but it is worth a try. If that does not work you have two options, get the leaky hose replaced, or just keep fluid in the reservoir.

If it isn't your tires squealing, you may have a problem with your power steering system. Check your reservoir, you may have a low fluid level due to a leak. If fluid level is OK, the pump itself may be failing.
"WHAT" squeals when doing hard turns? If you are hearing the tires squealing on the pavement, then you may have a suspension or wheel alignment problem. If you are hearing a squeal in the engine compartment, you may have a loose or badly worn drive belt that is running your power steering pump. A sqealing belt can also be the result of a broken or weak belt tensioner.
The squeal, first: Noises are difficult to diagnose without hearing them in person. There are too many potential causes; maybe the power steering pump (turning the wheel to lock causes this), maybe tires, maybe a cv joint. The A/C water is condensation that occurs because of the cold. This is perfectly natural and is a sign of a very cold-blowing A/C unit.
Find the leak and repair it...It is a sealed system, if you are adding large amounts of power steering fluid, it is leaking out somewhere. Hoses, reservoir, steering box, power steering pump are places to check. You should only have to add minimal fluid to the system for the entire year.
The immediate squeal you hear is most probably the unit is out of fluid or has leaked onto the serpentine belt and causing it to slip.
Fix the leak and check your serpentine belt for wear.
it seems your have a power steering problem. it could be a simple fix by checking the power steering resevoir for proper fluid level. it also be that the steering pump is failing. the most troublesome is that the rack and pinion unit is the fault. first thing to check is the fluid resevoir if it's low fill to proper level and start the vehicle. turn the steering wheel all the way left and hold till you hear a light squeal, then turn to the right and hold till you hear the squeal. do this several times. this is to make sure there is no air in the system. you should be able to turn the wheel and it should be smooth with no hesitation. if this doesn't solve the problem, then you must take it to a shop to have the pump replaced if it is the fault or the rack and pinion............please rate the solution...thanks
