What you've said is possible but likely there was some pump damage when you originally had the hose leak. Manufacturers have always said to use P/S fluid in steering pumps but within the past ten years this has become more critical to the point that I now would never "cheat" and use trans oil.
If you remove the return hose and drain system (running), then re-fill with p/s oil you MAY regain function, but it's not a 100% chance.
If you do this, make sure you bleed air out by turning wheels all the way left, then all way right and checking fluid level each time till oil level stablizes. If some performance is restored, repeat in about one week. If not, replace the pump.

If you have the 3.8 liter the pump and container is located on the passenger side of the engine in the rear, it is under the altenator and is
difficult to get to. There are also the heater hoses above it that can burn you so you will need to check it cold. If you look with a flash light you should be able to see it.

Most all of your power steering fluids are basically all the same.But you should also look in your owners manual for recommended fluids and lubrication's for your specific vehicle.
