I had exactly the same thing on my 87 5000 S Q. A mechanic told me ;
a. the power steering and brakes share the same reservour
b. I had the 'normal' 5000 power steering leak
c. If I out in power steering fluid to the res. it would stop
d. putting in half a pint of fluid a year is cheaper than replacing the rack.
The honest advice he gave actually talked me out of an $800 job and has
proved correct. In over a year of driving I have spent around $1.50 on oil..
and no beeping noise!
