Gurgling noise behind steering wheel
Likely to be the steering pump fluid level. if it is just top it up, that very cheap to do. If any parts need replacing then prices very but tend to be expensive with Toyota so try fluid first I doubt there will be anything wrong with the pump or ram

SOURCE: loud noise when turning wheel
That red fluid is power steering fluid. You may not have lost enough yet to register but you will. You need to determine whether it's leaking from a cracked hose (which I've seen on Toyota products), or from the steering rack itself, and from there the course of repair can be determined.

Sounds like a Power Steering Whine to me. Simply check your power steering fluid. If it is low, there is a leak somewhere. If not it's possible the pump may be on it's way out.

Try replacing the Sway bar bushings first, 10 to 1 they need it anyway, this should fix the creaking noise. If this dose not solve the problem then check the power stearing fluid & top off if needed, then right after you do this, start the van and have some one you trust turn the stearing wheel hard left and hard right for 2 min., and you get under the front of the van and look for a power steering fluid leak, if you find a leak replace leaking line or part. If this dose not solve the problem in some rare cases the power stearing box or pitmen arm is bad and you should not try to do this at home. seek a full auto shop.

Check the water coolant level because some of the hot water goes into the heater radiator behind the dash. Seems you have air in the system.
