Default squeals like a pig

Lost some power steering fluid when I did some head work and had to remove the hose going to the reservoir. I topped it off with power steering fluid when I got thing back together and the noisees started. Just flushed out the system with atf+4 and now its worse. Time for a new pump?

Okay, so here is my issue. Constant squeak from pump. Fluid looks a little too full. However, when it pop the hood there I usually some fluid sitting in the little groove on top of the reservoir. I wonder if my cap might be leaking? Any ideas?

Also, I just remembered I have a few drip spots in my driveway too. But the level does not change.

I had a leaky cap (they are spring loaded)...the reservoir looked oily all the time...take a rag & dry it off, than check it again after you drive it next.
Cap is a dealer item, no auto parts store in town could order one.
