power steering issues

My son has a 2009 gt that has us baffled on the problem with the power steering return system. problem started with the return hose (rack to condenser) splitting. First repair was him replacing the split section of line with a transmission line spliced in, held about two days and blew off . Did this again after replacing all rubber hose sections. Next repair was replacement of line with factory hose, lasted about three days and split again. Replaced hose again and a new pump, two days and line blew off condenser fitting this morning. Have two other G8 GTs in family without this problem and would like to find solution to problem.

Found the problem. Oil cooler in condenser was stopped up. Took off the return line from the pump side and blew back thru the condenser to unstop it.
