Default Flushed PS lines STILL have the groaning??

I read in several forums here that if you get a groaning from your power steering the best thing to do is flush the lines. I did that (what a mess!) and still have the groaning. I also have a loss of fluid somewhere.
I have 183k on motor never replaced PS yet. Belt was changes about 50-60k ago.
specs- 03, auto, non turbo.
Should I try flushing more? or look to replace, I can't find the leak of the fluid.

Don't know about the fluid loss as somewhere you have a leak but here is something about the noise.

Ok, so before trying to replace the PS pump, I tried flushing it again. This time I notice the the noise goes away when I use transmission fluid but when I run PS fluid it comes back????? Is it ok to run transmission fluid ONLY in it?
Also why would that cause the noise? And trany fluid not?
