Default Cummins 24 valve power steering pump.

Hey all! Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! My concern today is my 99 3500 2 wheel drive dually's power steering pump. It appears to have developed a leak, but after I changed engine oil yesterday, I laid under and watched it while running the engine. It almost seems to be engine oil, as it is darker than p/s fluid and smells more like diesel crankcase. Leak appears to be coming out dead center of the pump. I only have had to add less than a pint in last 4000 miles, and steering is quiet when turning, no buzzing or noises. Truck has 158,000 miles on the odometer. Support our Troops! Dale
