REPLACED POWER STEERING PUMP TWICE!!!

1994 Cadillac Deville

Steering problem
1994 Cadillac Deville V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

I recently had my power steering pump lock up and it got so hot that it melted the coupling that goes from the reservoir to the pump(its plastic). I replaced the coupling, and the pump and it did the same thing. The pump gets so hot it starts to smoke. I took the return line off, plugged the reservoir and started the car and no fluid flows. Power steering filters not clogged, what else could it be? Is it clogged somewhere?
