Yes it is the power steering pump, this is all to common on all Fords, you will need to flush the system until the fluid is clear and the replace pump, following bleeding instructions that come with new/rebuilt pump. If you don't flush out the old fluid the new pump will fail again.

Can you hear the whine of the fuel pump with key-on, engine-off? You should hear this whine correspond with the fuel pump relay, located in the relay centre under the hood. It should run for about 3 seconds and then turn off. Of course, this is just the first preliminary step to trouble shoot a no-start condition. Checking for fuel, spark and spark at the right time, are always the first things to be certain of, before you can go any further. Just a note: GM products will only cycle the fuel pump once for every key-on, engine-off cycle. You will need to crank the engine and then turn off the key to reset the pump relay.
