The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

no need to bleed it at all,just turn steering from left to right and its bled.never done one but it depends on whats involved and what you need to remove to get at it.Also over the pond anything thats not come from motor city they dont know how?? to do it.Just like in europe if its american with auto box then its telephone numbers.Dont be scared just get a new pipe and allow a saturday morning to change it but make sure you borrow a set of pipe spanners first,like a ring with a **** in the end so you dont round off the nuts.Think they are either 16mm or 17mm heads.

it sounds like tour power steering rack and pinion may be leaking this is what you call the actuator rod.

"The leak" is probably not the pump. A closer inspect might reveal a bad hose, hose fitting or worse yet the "rack" has a bad seal. Who ever diagnosed the leak did not look close enough to verify the source of the leak. The washer story sounds suspect too.
I would take a small inspection mirror ( 1" or so in diameter), and look with a focused flahlite on exactly the drips of power sterring fluid are cming from. Some reputabile shops have a UV dye and use a black light to trace,,, but a good sarp eye and searching will spot the source leak.
Then you need to take the hose or part to the NAPA , or your choice parts store and save the money a shop or dealer would charge...
good luck jerzil

Check power steering rack. on the camarys its alittle more common than most cars. poke a hole in the boot and watch for a leak. Nothggn should come out of there. If you have fluid coming from the boots then your internal seals are leaking on the rack. a small hole will not hurt the rack if nothing comes out.
Also check your power steering pump shaft. sometimes the seal will leak
I think your over heating problem may be a different problem all together.
Hopefull that helps.
