Default PS pump -trans cooler -crank pulley

I canít go to a shop as all of them have failed me and just gave me more stress. Asked several garages about the hose under power steering resivoir that looked like it was leaking. No , it was wet and greasy always but never lost fluid . Was told windshield fluid tank cracked . (Even though windex isnít greasy ) well as I took apart front to secure the radiator that I paid 3 differ garages to check movement as concerns me pulling on things . Because heater hose started leaking , rad hose, pipes coming off back. Etc...
decided to change oil cooler gasket . But now that leak stopped but a lot of caked up oil is building where the oil cooler attatches. And the pipes or pressure lines under filter are leaking. So is around my thermostat housing or right above it.
Last code was high idling ..

Are those all connected ? Is the oil from the ps pump or is there an oil pump directly behind oil cooler.

Oh also my crankshaftpully is going bad , Iím 95% sure of it. Rings are damaged and Iíve heard a honing whistle noise at idle before. Now belt squeaks over bumps. But thatís a whole other thread. I canít afford to throw parts at it or I would so I can start fixing it as I take a while . Iím overly cautious🤨

Sounds like you're lagging on your maintenance:
1. Replacing you crank pulley/balancer is Job 1.
2. The hose under the PS reservoir goes to PS pump that goes to high pressure line then to steering rack and return.
3. If you see oil drippings around the T-stat area its likely from valve cover leaking oil. Its either you tightened mounting bolts or replace valve cover gasket.

Is this a QR25DE or VQ40DE engine?
