Question about 1992 Toyota 4Runner
Probably too late, but I had the same problem. There is a small vacuum module that is used to raise the engine RPM when you are trying to turn into tight spots. This module is attached to the power steering pump and has 2 vacuum hoses going into the intake manifold. If the vacuum module has a hole in it, it will **** the power steering fluid into the intake manifold and ultimately get burned with the results being smoke coming from the exhaust. I have bypassed the intake vacuum but for some reason I am having problems keeping the vacuum hoses attached. I think there may be something else plugged in the power steering that would damage the vacuum module to begin with.

If the hose did not solve the problem, take it back. Tell the service manager ou came in to have the disappearing oil problem corrected, you didn't come in to replace a hose on a hit or miss repair. Sweiously, That is alot of money for a hose replace.
