Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
Of course the hose is going to pop off! It's under a lot of pressure and heat! By design, the power steering hose, connectors, and ferrules are pressure fitted together (called crimping) by using a hydraulic press.
Either go to your local parts store (NAPA, Pep Boys, Auto Zone) or parts department of the Dodge/Chrysler dealership and purchase & install a new hose.
You may have even burned out the entire hydraulic servo system.
Better yet, I strongly advise having a certified ASE mechanic check out the entire system; and let them install the new hose since the power steering system will have to be bled.
Lives depend on it.

Testimonial: "lol john i understand that the system is under pressure,so understanding why its popping off is not the problem,however i am simply installing the hose exactly the way it was installed before no crimping of anykind was ever on the hose just a simple pressure clamp which i reinstalled after putting the hose back on the fitting , while i appreciate your help if all your going to do is talk down to me please keep your comment to yourself thank.by no means is this my first time under the hood of a vehicle"

try checking the tank u do have to lift it with a jack but if its not the tank then it could be comming from the gas line which is under the van as well.

I work for a brake repair shop and trust me you are not alone.Enterprise and alot of other people bought the same van and had the same trouble.I hate to say but it doesnt stop there.About every 14 to 15 thousand miles you have to replace the front pads.As of now they dont have an upgrade,for instance ceramic pads, but I am sure they will very soon

Go buy a 3/8 inch transmission hose (most stores sell it by the foot) and cut it to length then reclamp it. I just did this to my 2001 Town/Country tonight and it worked wonderfully! Hope this helps you!

you need to put a scanner on it and see what code comes up.
my guess would be the crank sensor which is very common .

A flashing CEL is a misfire. Since the light is on the computer has stored a fault code. Places like Auto Zone will scan the code for free (except in CA) and tell you why the light is on. This is a free service. Get the computer scanned and post the codes here that they give you. A lot of things can cause misfires but unless you want two pages full of guesses, you'll need to get those codes pulled.
