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!

To make it easier to remove, Place a jack at the rear of the of the sub frame.Remove the rear bolts which there are usually 2 on each side or more.Next make sure the car is high enough off the ground loosen the front bolts.DO NOT REMOVE!!!!!!!After you have done that slowly let down on the jack.Just enough to pull the rack out..Lowering the jack to far could break some stuff so be careful and go slow..

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.
