A couple of days ago my power steering failed. I replaced the fluid but it still is hard to turn, I've checked it almost everyday and I have continued to put fluid in. A couple of months ago I noticed a funny sweet like smell coming from the engine, I've replaced the coolant twice already. Is there a possibility that these problems are working hand in hand. I've never noticed any leaks on soils on the pavement.

They are 2 different problems, the p/s has to be leaking from somewhere.I suggest bleeding the p/s system, but before you do check for leaks, very common problem is the low pressure p/s hose leaking. As far as the coolant have the system pressure tested to find a leak. If no visable leak is found could be internal leak. Post back with an other questions.
