SOURCE: power steering rack leaking
If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!

Its most likely a seal on the power steering rack by the age it will most likely just be a seal they are about £7 in UK but possible the rack is goosed although I doubt it, please be careful using the car as it can lock the steering in position, and,,,, well you get it.

This does not solve your problem, but perhaps power in numbers will help. I have had 2 steering racks replaced on my 2006 TL. Acura is not claiming any defects, but the steering is extremely difficult to turn. Hardly even feels like I have power steering. I'm upset because I had to pay for the 2nd rack just 14 months after the 1st one was replaced. I expected more from the Acura brand!

I really wouldn't push it more than 3 months or especially if climate change once the leak stop has stopped the leak it doesn't like temp change. but i've done radiator stop leak from Lucas and went 6 months before the leak appeared again. good luck

Check out the steering fluid at the rubber hose connecting to the metal hose. It gets deteriorated and made some leak. When the car is traveling, it could splash everywhere. Try to tighten the clamp. If it doesn't work, replace that rubber hose and a clamp. If it is a case have the steering fluid flushed out to get a new fresh fluid for your steering.
