Put a clean piece of cardboard, thin plywood, or whatever, under front tires, large enough to cover area under vehicle from front bumper to just behind front wheels. Start it with power steering full & crank wheels back & forth a few times. Monitor for drops of fluid on surface, to isolate problem area. may need to sit all night. Or take it in to shop, have them put on hoist & diagnose.

Stop leak is last resort, or cheap way out in emergency situation, but remember, sometimes it can clog up some parts of heater & cooling system. Take it to a rad shop, or auto repair place & have the cooling system pressure tested. It will confirm if there is a leak, and they should have dye that they can add to coolant when leak is hard to find, or if they suspect head gasket leak. Then they run engine for while & shine a blacklight all over engine & into exhaust pipe, to see glow of dye, to confirm where coolant is going.

usually the high pressure hose will leak, the hose will be wet; that would indicate a leak. sometimes the steering rack will leak if you have alot of miles
to locate these items go to an auto parts box store and look at the manual for your car

Replace the ps pump, brake fluid is not a lubricant, your pump is scored, raise the van, block it, remove the sheild, belt and right axle, and remove the pump, you will have to flush the system with 4-5 litres of PS fliud only. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP
