Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.
The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

SOURCE: power steering hose leak
as long as you use a flair nut wrench on the fittings it's not that hard. Since you aren't going to use the old hose over, if the nuts are frozen you can break the line off and use a socket to get them off. Don't loose any "o" rings (new kit comes with them as needed but make sure you know where the old ones are. New lines are often a slightly different shape than old one...make sure line is not rubbing on anything or it will wear through.
After filling, turn the wheel gently all the way to one side, then the other and re-check level. Most times any noise at pump will disappear after use,as any residual air bleeds out.

That generation GC does not have a rack and pinion but they do have bad lower steering gearbox seals, allowing all the fluid to gush out when that seal failed. Check to see if p/s fluid is leaking out from the bottom of the steering gearbox. If it is, pull pitman arm, replace seal, replace pitman arm and all should be good.
