power steering 1991 crown victoria

I am leaking power steering fluid to the point where I am adding it every 3 days or so - although I am not adding a full bottle, if I didnt do this, I would get a rubbing sound. I doubt the unit has ever been replaced or worked on and I am wondering how to go about replacing it if I need to or just replace the seals?

Which part of the power steering system are we discussing?

Had the same happen on my 1990 Crown Victoria. After cleaning the pump and hoses thoroughly, saw that it was the high pressure hose that was leaking. Got a new one at the parts store (around $ 20) and put it in, which took care of things.

Fill the power steering reservoir, than get someone to turn the steering wheel all the way to the stop and hold it. Look for leak. Have seen high pressure hoses leak but could be a number of things.
