I had a power steering leak for over 2 years. Had to add a bottle every couple days. Started to notice that the oil would raise in level at the same rate I was loosing power steering fluid! It was the air control valve connected to the pump. When you idle and turn the wheels the air control valve will open to raise the idle so the engine doesn't lug. When it goes bad it leaks into the intake at such a rate it goes into the engine!
power steering fluid leaking and need to add fluid every couple days, pressure washed and cleaned best as possible but still cannot pin point the leak. Not much room to see in that area. Will post back when I find the exact cause
