Default power steering

hi all
hoping someone can help with a problem i have with my power steering,
when engine running fluid level is very low but if i top it up it seems to froth up and when i turn engine off it overflows.
after leaving for a while to settle it looks to have turned back to non froth but level is low.
hopefully someone has come across this before and can help.
thanks
mark

The fluid is getting aerated by the high pressure piping entering the fluid DA reservoir. Top up the fluid about 30mm ish above the maximum. This will minimise the aeration.
Run the car for 15min, and turn the steering wheel left to right a few times not going all the way to full lock each side.
