Question about 2007 Honda Odyssey
Garages have fluid exchange devices that can purge this system of the brake fluid, although my bet is that he tried to refill the powersteering reservoir because a problem already existed. A leak and possible running the pump dry will destroy the pump and a new one will need to be installed. Depending on the amount of brake fluid poured In may actually stop a leak if it is caused by a hard rubber seal as the brake fluid in conjunction with the powersteering fluid will soften and swell the rubber seals. Of course it will also make the rubber swell to the point it no longer fits its intended target shaft. Anyway you need to get the failed part replaced now and the system will be essentially flushed when yo disconnect the lines and drain them.

You will have to raise & support the vehicle
Remove the injector fuses-- so it won't start
Remove the power steering cooler return hose at
reservoir & add a hose to a bottle under vehicle
On a Honda you need Dealer Only Fluid & add to
container,then crank the motor to flush out the brake fluid
It may work or it may have damaged the seals in the entire
Why add fluid in the first place
No systems uses fluid--so is there a leak to be repaired
If flushing it works-- add the Lubgard Purple (Honda Only)
& Yellow Bottle additive or whatever the dealer has

On vehicles with a hydraulic booster you will find that the power steering pump supplies fluid through bot the steering gear box and the hydraulic booster.
Just a visual inspection of the system should point you to the part that failed, most likely a hose. These can be obtained through your local parts store or dealership.
Locate and replace the failed part, refill the reservoir with power steering fluid. With the front of the truck on jack stands, start the truck and turn the steering wheel from full left to full right several times while pumping the brakes. This will remove the air from the system. Recheck for leaks and fluid level and you'll be on your way.
Hope that helps, good luck.

sadly it sounds like the rack and pinion is going bad..rebuilt units are available ...you'll need a 4 wheel alignment after replacement. Get this fixed as it very dangerous and will only get worse

SOURCE: oil in water header tank.
oil in header tank indicates a blown head gasket this could also explain the hunting.The brakes might just need bleeding,while this is done you can check for fluid leaks.Shakey steering at a certain speed is wheel balancing,this is quite cheap to fix but it must be done at a tyre fitting garage.hope this helps,good luck.
