SOURCE: cant locate power steering leak
I have the same problem. The high pressure line coming off the bottom of the power steering pump was leaking where the steal line goes into the rubber line. The fluid was running down the hose between the plastic cover on the hose and coming out on the bottom passenger side. This hose is a huge pain to change have to lower the sub frame to get it off the rack. And the hose is expensive.
Good Luck hope this helps

There is no repair commonly to repair the rack and pinion. The only thing you can do is replace the unit and make sure it gets aligned properly afterward so it does not wear out either the outside or inside of the tires, cause the steering wheel to be off, or steering issues.

If the power comes on and off, in all probability it is not a mechanical failure. Seems like the belt that drives the steering pump is loose, and when extra power is required, such as in a tight turn, then it slips and stops providing power assistance. Poke the belt with a finger to see if it loose, and tighten it accordingly. These pumps do not require much power, and the belt does not require to be extremely tense. By trial and error, tighten it bit by bit until it stops slipping. Over tensioning will provoke a failure of the pump pulley. Also check if the pulley or belt have grease on them, because that will contribute to slipping.

Bad lines or bad pump. if it's not a bad leak, try some stop leak additive and add fluid when needed. If it's bad, you need to replace what's leaking before your spend the repair cost in powersteering fluid. lines are relatively cheap and i would replace them before you run out of fluid and burn the pump up.
