SOURCE: Seems like the power steering

If this is around a 1999 F150, it is the Power Steering line going to the front steering oil cooler. There is a plastic clip which holds the line against the frame. Apparently it is a common problem. The plastic part seems to hold road salt and moisture against the metal and it corrodes.

Change the line out or at least take it off and inspect it.

Location of the brake fluid input


the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..

Power steering - wheel feels like it pulls


check your balljoints. jack up the wheel and try to move it side to side and in and out. if it moves more than a minimal amount your ball joints could be bad and you will need to takeit in and they can let you know how close the are to breaking.

I dont know where it is


it is located behind the power steering pump. You need to remove the power steering pump to get to it which requires removing the engine mount next to it to get the bottom bolt out of the power steering pump. The sensor is directly behind the power steering pump. You can follow the cable that goes behind the pump. It is the only one there.

Power Steering pump pulley


You'll need a power steering pump puller available at most part stores. They are very easy to use and it should have directions in the package on proper use. Just think if you can do yours, you can do most of the domestics pumps out there.
