The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.

The steering has always been loud even with the fluid full but it suddenly became very loud. Saw the fluid was empty, filled it up, drove 20 miles to work and by the time I left work that evening it was empty again. LOTS of fluid on the ground and when I ran it in park and cut the wheel to the left, it spray fluid from the high pressure power steering hose connection. could not replace myself because I could not get a wrench in at that angle.
