Yes the power steering fluid, It's leaking out the cap, (on the pump) I was thinking:duh: beening the booster was higher than the pump the problem was it's draining back down and over filling the pump housing after setting awile. Ed.................

Na, Havent done nothing.It's did this before after sitting for awile. Now when I start it, It'll be low on power steering fluid. The truck sits in a heated garage around 60deg. It been in the same spot for a month, (not started) all of a sudden looked under the truck and it has power steering all over the floor. Checked fluid leval and its over full....... EDIT;That's why I'm thinking it's draining down/back into the power steering pump housing..........
