I have a 2002 Astra G with 180 miles on the clock. The power steering is driving me nuts. Very often than not, I lose power steering, and when I pop the hood, I find that the same fuse has blown, again and again.
When I replace the mentioned fuse, I get back my power steering, and less than three days, same thing happens.

I have tried filling the power steering with hydraulic fluid, no change. My alternator appears to be working good, if it was over charging, it would be blowing up other fuses, but no, only power steering.

Seeking guidance on how to go about giving my beauty total healing.

It could simply be that the motor is overloaded and blowing fuses,
this could be down a number of things like seized parts in the EPS system,seized top strut bearings etc
or simply an internal (or external) short.
The electrical loads can be checked with a scanner that can connect to the EPS.
here's the expected data sheet

although i did see a previously unregistered Mk1 Cortina up for auction last week with a genuine 80 miles on the clock (y)
