Pump or Hose leak? on 1993 Ford Taurus

How does one determine if a power steering leak requires hose or pump replacement. My pump was supposedly replaced a year ago, but I have a little trickle hitting the ground beneath it and I have to top it up pretty often.

Clean off any oil residue and have someone add dye to your power steering system. When the leak comes back, a black light can be used to see where the leak originates.

I can tell you that the power steering hoses on this car were problematic for leaking. Ford sold replacements in a kit of all 3 hoses. Replacing them is not a simple task. Good luck!
