Default Where is the leak?

ok so i have been racking my head trying to figure out where this leak is coming from. i think its the rack and pinion (a hose somewhere) but the power steering level is full and not dropping. I know i have a leak with the coolant but those are separate leaks that im working on. just tell me what yall think please.

Not sure with just the pics man but have you looked at it with the engine running? Could be a pressure leak. Is it oil or coolant based? You say you have coolant leaks but have you ruled that out completely yet?

thats the other problem i cant figure out when it is leaking. iv let it run turned the wheel hard looked and still cant find it. its a very slow leak, i was hopping to see if someone else has seen something like this or maybe had an idea to test to see. this is all new to me.

Look at the high pressure and return lines, reach under the power steering pump to see if it is leaking.

U guys best grab some uv dye.
Pretty effective and better than springing a leak in the middle of nowhere on a hot day. :P

I'm terrible with closeup pics cause it looks like a cup of coffee with cream in the last pic...looks like maybe check your coolant with a pressure test.

My bad you said other than coolant. Do the taste test then !

Second pic the fluid accumulated under the rack bolt on the left side looks green, indicating your timing cover may be leaking as it's right above that location. Typically the passenger side leaks first.
