Default 97 - Power steering hose location

My fluid is low in my 97 and I believe there may be a leak and I'm hoping it's at the hose and no where else.

I'm having a difficult time locating my power steering hose. I tried searching on youtube for a tutorial with no luck. Can anyone simply help me locate this hose?

Take a moment to go into your CP and in your signature line add in your trucks year, (I know it s 97 but for future reference) engine, 2wd or 4x4, auto/manual and any mods you may have to help you better.

In the interim, what engine?

Will do. My apologies.

97 4x4 automatic, v6 4l ETF engine.

I can see where the hoses come out of the resevoir, but having a tough time locating the hose I would use to flush the system. The hoses that come directly off the resevoir are crimpted clamps. I thought there were was an easier hose to remove under thep engine. Does that make snese?

Is it a hose issue or a bad reservoir dripping along the hose?
