I will try to keep this simple. I have always worked on my own vehicles but I'm new to the diesel side. I have a 1999 Dodge that I keep losing power steering fluid, although I cannot find any leaks anywhere. Is it possible that the power steering fluid is entering the crankcase? Can someone enlighten me?

The vaccum pump is between the power steering pump and the engine. It's not likely the fluid is getting there.
You know the power steering pump supplies power to the power brakes. You may check those lines too.

Here's a downloadable 2001 service manual.
The download is kinda slow but worth the wait.

Thank you for the help.... Yes I've checked the hydro boost lines and also the firewall inside now making sure it was not leaking on the brake side... kinda has me stumped ...

You might check the pitman arm shaft on the bottom of the steering box for a telltale drop of fluid.
