Power Steering Leak

Hey guys I could use your advice. I believe I have power steering leaking but trying to find out which line it's coming from.

Check out my video if you have time. I hope it's clear and understandable.

I recommend using some Simple Green and getting that all cleaned up under there, so you can find exactly where the leak is coming from.

Is it a bad leak?
Does it leave a puddle when the car is parked?

No puddle. It's somewhat a slow leak. I don't drive it often but when I do drive it I notice oil is all over the lines and hoses

Yeah, the power steering hoses are under a lot of pressure.
You may get lucky, and it is just a loose fitting.

I have the same leaking issue at the pump where the pressure hose passes through the fitting. The fitting cannot be tightened any more than it is (without resorting to hammer blows [ahh!]) Will a 'simple' hose replacement fix the leak? Also; will this require bleeding the system after replacement? One more thing...Could a leak of this nature cause any unusual noises (ie. like an empty pumping sound after turns?)

Do you know for sure it's coming from this line?

Yes. Air in the system can cause a noisy pump.
