Burning Power steering fluid

This is a new one on me,the ps pump is letting fluid run into the vacuum lines that return to the intake.

So it is making the engine smoke a lot till the reservoir is empty.
I dissconnected the lines and it stops smoking.
Anyone have any idea what is causing this.

Why is your PS system connected to a vacuum source? What kind of car you got?

you missed the wink...

Just bolt the vacuum booster to the firewall, the hydro-boost to the vacuum booster, bolt up the master, and attach all the lines/hoses. Make sure you don't forget to hook up the vacuum return line. You also have to use a tandem master as they are made to use 2 boosters

True I am the closest.... Maybe I will pay him a visit if I am in the area... My advice is to NOT hook your power steering system up to a vacuum source! Unless you got the duel tandem hydro system or whatever.. It made sense last night!
