Question about 2008 Ford Escape
Fluid was low, put in more fluid, no apparent leaks, steering wheel stutters and power stearing goes in and out
HAS COLD AND HOT FLUID LEVEL. IF WAS LOW THERE IS A LEAK/SEEP. CHECK STEERING RACK BELLOWS IF WET/DAMP
REMOVE CLAMP AND PUSH BELLOW BACK, IF FLUID IS PRESENT THE STEERING GEAR IS LEAKING.

the hyrdra boost supplies pressure to these systems, that is done throught the power steering pump, the line or the pump is defective, I would replace both.

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!

It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)
I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.
