Well, they foud it. The power steering return line has a "zip tie" used to route the return line and hold it in place. This was broken "or missing" and the cacle had chaffed on something untill it chaffed through and all the fluids leaked out. The replaced the return line, flushed it and bled it to get the air out. Seems to run OK now. Luckily I am still under warrenty. According to our SVT supplements the power steering fluid is actually Mercon ATF.
