The power steering went out on my friends 01 Kia Sportage Ex and I need help on diagnosing what I need to replace. Also maybe a link to a repair manual.

Looks likes he needs a gear box. I've been trying for a long time to find a full rebuild kit but haven't. Mine has too much place cause the balls inside have a lot of wear causing a lot of play.

There should be a sticky link for the repair manual. Manual doesn't go into much on repairing the gear, just replacing it. Don't even tell you how to adjust it.

Try searching for an Edelmann 9174 Steering Gear Major Seal Kit. I got one on Amazon last month, but paid $20 less than what it is currently priced at ($46).
I would think this kit would fix your leak issue.
