got a puzzle here with the power steering in this van. started out as a leak in the system turns out its a high pressure hose, "OK" no big deal. so i replace the hose and ever since the power steering pump whines all the time and still has a lot of air in the system. my girlfriend complains about a burning smell (like ps fluid) and still seems to be adding fluid, thinks it may still be leaking also a lack of power assist. the pump ran fine before the new hose it just leaked a quart ever two or three days. i drove it and id does smell like ps fluid and the pump is noisy with lack of assist especially at a standstill. did notice some fluid, thought it might have been just some that spilt when doing the hose. ive been working on vehicles for years and this is a new problem to me. anyone have any ideas?
