Power steering hoses are leaking
The PS hoses appear to leak under load, however the aerodynamics of the air flow around this part and the placement of this part on the engine creates a wide distribution of the fluid, the exhaust manifold as well as the exhaust connection to the muffler system is close to this area this creates a fire hazard.

Bad engine design.
Power steering did not hold any PS Fluid.
hoses were rusted! cost me over $300 to get it fixed.
Heavy leak, hard to pinpoint exact location due to the large area where fluid can be seen while underneath the vehicle.
the power steering pump is leaking, took it to the mechanic, gave a quote of around 600 ( for pump and hose)
been almost 6 months, I have been just replacing the fluid once in a while, ( 4$ bucks for a week)
180,00 miles - steering wheel cannot turn. only turns with great effort. not enuf to drive.
Power steering locked up
