    I was doing a couple donuts tonight in my truck just messin around and when I started to drive back home I noticed my power steering was acting funny. It felt like it was coming and going. I stopped and looked under the hood and fluid was everywhere. I took the cap off and it looked like it was full, actually it looked like there was too much in it because it was almost to the top of the resevior. I havent put any in it for a long time and keep a check on it so I know it had the right amount in it. I put the cap on and drove home. It always works when im driving down the road but if I stop sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. I figure the pump is bad but why would fluid leak everywhere and the resevior look overfilled?

    it may have overheated and the fluid boiled over
