You will most probably find that the seals in the power steering unit are faulty, clean the power steering lines etc and check to see where the leak actually is, it should be obvious if you are using that amount of fluid.
If it is just the line have a new one made at a hydraulic hose supply shop as it will most probably be cheaper than buying it original.

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass

There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

I need to replace a power steering pump on a 1992 Olds Cutlass Ciera. How does one tackle that problem?

First you will need a pulley remover/installer. Remove the power steering belt, remove bolts holding the pump, remove p/s lines, replace in reverse order,and fill pump. Start car and move steering wheel back and forth slightly, then turn the wheel all the way stop to stop Always watch that there is plenty of fluid in the reservoir. Check with dip stick, should be full to bottom mark;

So I have a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera that leaks power steering Fluid. It winds even when topped off but will work smoothly for a little while and than will be tough. The pump is new and I am wondering what...

Usually there aren't P/S fluid coolers on small pass. cars like this. Your rack & pinion could be leaking, or one of the lines. There is a great deal of pressure involved, up to 1600PSI.
Pressure wash your engine, rack and pinion and lines. Fill up and look carefully where a leak is coming from.

You can fix the whining by bleeding the system - you may either vacuum bleed it or you can manually bleed it, by turning the steering wheel lock - to - lock at least 15 times with the engine OFF - best done with the front wheels off of the ground.

Brakes are not working and filling it with brake fluid doesnt seem to work. how can you check the brake lines and how do you now if one is broken on a 1995 cutlas ciera oldsmobile?

Fill the master again and have someone pump the brake while you watch underneath the car. You will see fluid coming out wherever the leak is. When replacing a broken line, it is unsafe to use a compression fitting with ferrules. Always replace a complete line from fitting to fitting. It is OK to join lines using a fitting made for flair ends in order to ease installation and obtain the proper length.
You do not need to exactly follow the original routing providing you secure the line so it does not vibrate and so it is away from sharp edges, linkage for trans and steering and exhaust pipes.
You should also check wheel cylinders, calipers and the rear of the master cylinder itself for signs of seepage as they can also leak. Always bleed the system to clear it of air after doing any hydraulic repair.
If you have never done any work of this kind before, it's wise to obtain a chilton or haynes manual to guide you. They are inexpensive and will also help with any future repairs!!!
Any questions? Just ask!!

Steering makes noise and is leaking around reservoir

Steering noise probably comes from low fluid level. replenish fluid level, and take it to a shop ASAP, in order to save the steering pump and steering rack assembly. If the leak is due to a broken line, then it is a simple repair, but if the fluid is returning to the reservoir due to excessively high pressure, then a more detailed inspection is required.

Power steering pump vibrates

I have a similar problem. The power steering felt jerky just the moment you start and drive off. My mechanic flushed out the old fluid with a power steering flush fluid and replenish with new fluid and that did the trick. The old fluid looked clean in the resovior but down in the steering rack, its a different story. The fluid is dark and contained some sludge. No wonder the steering assist was jerky.
