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!

I agree with snowboard. Another name for the line wrench is "tubing wrench". It looks like a common boxed end wrench with six "points" or places of contact inside the boxed end but has a slot cut in it so it will slip over the metal tube part of the hose. Using this type of wrench you are less likely to "round off" the shoulders of the tubing nut. You won't be able to have the hose fixed. Well, you CAN, but it's much cheaper to buy a new one. I believe they're around $20.00 or so.
If the nut is recessed or some sort of wierd shape, try going to the dealership and talking to a mechanic. I've talked them into renting me a specialized tool. Some of the larger auto part supply stores also rent tools for a small fee. I think what you will need is the tubing wrench. Spend a few extra dollars and replace both hoses while you are getting greasy. That way you won't have to bother with it again for quite a while.

YOU CANT USE A REGULAR FUEL LINE ON POWER STEERING AS A HIGH PRESSURE HOSE.BECAUSE POWER STEERING PRESSURE IS 1000 PSI.YOU HAVE TO BUY THE POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE HOSE IT HAS NUMBER OF PLIES MATERIAL WEAVES TO MAKE IT STRONG.IT WAS MADE FOR POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE.YOU DONT HAVE A BLOCKAGE .THE HIGH PRESSURE HOSE JUST WORE OUT.REPLACE IT .IT SHOULD FIX THE PROBLEM.

There shouldn't be anything wrong with your pump or rack. Sounds like you just have air in your lines. You need to re-bleed your lines. Bleed them at the lowest pt, i would use something clean to capture the fluid so to re-use it. The nipple is what your looking for to drain. Dont remove nipple just loosen it and while draining make sure your reservoir stays full may need another person to help watch! After you drain about as much as it normally takes to fill it up then close the nipple. All the air should be out now. Make sure reservoir is filled to the proper level then tighten cap. Then your done!

when it comes to the power steering hose I would say just do it yourself. As for the rack and pinion it will probably cost you quite a few hours of labor. anywhere from 5-9. Its up to you!
