    Honestly, I couldn't tell you. Your best bet is to online and find the Hayne's Repair Manual for your truck, and purchase it. These books are incredible, and I've had one for every vehicle that I've owned. Everything you need will be in this book. This is the link to that specific model.

Lay cardboard down under the front end, start up and turn the wheels, follow the drips if any, and check brake lines or loose connections, if its on the high pressure hose it could be a pinhole hard to detect or a problem with the steering box.

SOURCE: power steering leak on a 1988 full size bronco

The gear box is a common problem on this model. That would be the place I would start. A cheap, temporary fix is to go to your local parts store and ask for Lucas Power Steering Stop-Leak. It will buy you some time.

Change the power steering fluid. Use the Mercon V tranny fluid (also used in the power steering system).

SOURCE: My ford ranger is leaking power steering fluid and

For the leaking power steering it could be a pinhole in the hose, the sound in your left wheel sounds like a bearing is going down, or, the brake caliper is malfunctioning and holding pressure against the rotor while it is turning.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Escape leaking red fluid

Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!

I have an oil leak at top of motor and car didn't make this whining noise at first I checked the power steering and its full could the whining come from the leaking issue

Does the whining volume increase when you turn the steering wheel back and forth? If so, your power steering pump is on its way out. The "oil leak at top of motor" is not very descriptive. Is the color of the oil the same as the color of the power steering fluid? If so, it is likely that leak is coming from your power steering pump. If not, I would need more information to determine the cause of the leak. What color is it? How much is leaking? Does it leak when the car isn't running, or only when it is running? Where exactly on top of the motor is it leaking? A hose? A seam in the engine?

Put a clean piece of cardboard, thin plywood, or whatever, under front tires, large enough to cover area under vehicle from front bumper to just behind front wheels. Start it with power steering full & crank wheels back & forth a few times. Monitor for drops of fluid on surface, to isolate problem area. may need to sit all night. Or take it in to shop, have them put on hoist & diagnose.

If the hose clamps onto the rack & pinion,get a new clamp (replace the hose too,its probably worn)Reinstall it.fill the p/s resovoir,start the car (when the fluid gets low,add more fluid)It will make moaning noises.Just make sure the new hose isnt leaking.Turn the steering wheel back & forth a few times,top off the fluid,turn the wheel again,you should be ok.If the hose bolts on to the pump,you will need to change the hose with a wrench.(fluid replacement is the same way.
