SVT power steering leak

I tried asking this a week ago in the SVT forum, but didn't get any replies.

I'm gonna call the Ford garage and have them check it out (under warranty), but I'm curious if the SVT is known for leaking power steering fluid. TSB?

I got my oil changed a week ago (did you know Mobil 1 is better than AMSOIL and the AMSOIL filter ?) and they noticed that my SVT had a leak of some sort. We checked my fluids and noticed that the power steering fluid level was at the minimum cold mark. They topped it off and I went on my way.

Well, I checked the fluid today and it was in the middle of the hot and cold marks and I'm starting to get spots a few inches across on the driveway from sitting overnight.

I did have an incident earlier this year where my power steering didn't work, but I haven't had any issues since.

Gonna call Ford tomorrow.

Give the toughest job to the laziest man and he'll find the easiest way to get it done.
