P/S pump leaking!!

I have a 1999 323 and anytime I get on the gas to bring up the RPM's, fluid shoots out of the weep hole on the P/S cap, runs down the header and burns......stinks too!

I have checked the fluid and dosent appear to be overfilled, it has been doing this for months.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated, I am at a loss.

Thanks

The weep hole? Wouldn't a new cap fix it?

It looks like a drilled in hole in the top of the cap, not a crack or anything. Should there be a plug in this, or has anyone else heard of having this hole in their cap?

How does the steering feel? Have you ever bled the system.
