Clean the motor well. Start the truck and turn the steering wheel back and forth hard multiple times while checking to see if it leaks. These trucks have a bad rap for leaking from the seal right behind the pulley. If it is lower than that inspect your rack and pinion steering if it is 2000 or above.
