I am sure it is not foaming because I took a look inside of the reservoir and was ok.
I am actually using the GM fluid recomended by the manual.
Steering feel is good, no problems there, but the idea of an overflow makes me nervous because it might mean that the pump is still working at a lot of pressure.

If it's not overfilled, then there is no possibility of it expanding that much to overflow. It has to be either boiling, or drawing air in or otherwise foaming. Does it make any groaning noises when you drive it hard for awhile at high RPMs? The groaning is the sound of air or vapor pockets hitting the pump impeller, and will damage it eventually.

PS Pump and Gear work fine. It is that when driven hard ( 120 +) there is some smoke coming from the passenger side due tue P S fluid that gets out of the reservoir.
I read somewhere else that some forum members were using some kind of overflow tank, but I can't seem to find the posts.
