Question about 2003 Ford Escape
It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)
I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.

Do you know where it is leaking from and if it IS powers steering fluid, as automatic transmissioin fluid is the the same color and consistency

Power steering fluid and trans fluid aren't always same color Luke I bought Preston power steering fluid. For a 2004 ford esape i was working on the other day & it was clear!

Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!
