Re: power steering keeps breaking the hose and makes a...
If you get some odd noise from steering when you are turning tight, the pump doesn't get enough oil.
At first check the steering oil level is a pit more than "high".
If it is not help, there is sometimes dust in oilfilter?
The streering oil filter is inside the steering reservoir (oil tank?).
I took the reservoir out and clean the filter and now it is ok.

Many new power steering pumps will exhibit a whining noise for a time after installation. Some won't. Typically, they quiet down within 2-3 weeks once they break in a bit. If the new pump is doing its job and not leaking and the whine is not more like an ear-splitting shriek, just wait it out and see what happens.
You haven't described the noise or whether the noise increases when the pump is under load, or perhaps that is the only time it makes a noise?
As you undoubtedly know some noise is natural when a fluid is being forced through hoses and orifices under great pressure and some systems are noisier than others, especially when the steering is on full lock and all the surplus pressure is diverted through the relief valve.
Perhaps there is an inherent fault that is causing the fluid to become aerated or perhaps it is something more basic and the drive pulley alignment is off.
Perhaps it is a matter of poor routing of hoses and pipes transmitting normal noise into the body and amplifying it.
I believe there are additives available that can help lessen some of the noises of complaining oil.
spray down pump and hoses with degreaser and wash off. After its dry, use recomended fluid to fill. Start engine and turn steering wheel all the way left, and all the way right a couple of times. This will blead the air from the system. Now shut off and check fluid. Make sure it is full. Now drive the car down the road and make turns, and drive it back and check fluid level. If its still foamy and not leaking fluid, your pump ma be bad.
Have you checked the level of fluid in the pump? If it is full, you may have damaged the pump with it ran low. Try a Power Steering Lubricant first but if it is full and still making noise it is time to replace.
There are a few models that use the power steering pump at the booster for the brakes, but I doubt that yours is that. Look at the brake master cylinder. If it has this big round black drum, you have a vacuum assist and there is no correlation. If it has a couple of hoses going to an item behind the master that look like the hoses on your power steering there may be a correlation. Most of the diesels had the power steering booster.
To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.
