POWER STEERING NOISE

2003 Dodge Caravan

Steering problem
2003 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 102000 miles

Continous humming/whining noise from steering system. I hae been told that it could be in the hoses causing the steering fluid to aerate. Something about the metal portion of the line meeting the rubber portion of the line. The system has a remote reservoir away from the steering pump. With the van in the air I do see foam in the top of the reservoir but the fluid level is ok throught the full rotation of the steering wheel. The noise is louder at slow speeds or when sitting still. I think this is due to more strain on the system.
Thanks
