    Hmmm, How do you know the power steering is low if you haven't located the reservoir? Did you get an indicator light or is it making a squealing noise? You are looking for a reservoir under the hood with a cap that looks a bit like your brake master cylinder reservoir and cap - except that the PS cap will be clearly labelled (yellow or white) "power steering fluid". Unscrew the cap and add fluid to the line indicated on the side of the reservoir.

    If the engine is a 3.8 L i would look on the passenger side behind the motor it will be a little ways down. If that is were it is at i would make sure that if you check it when it is hot then watch out for the radioto hose. The best time to check it is when the motor is not hot. Watch out when you fill it that you don't over flow it then you will have a problem.

    On the 3.8 engine the PS pump is buried on the passenger side right up againt the firewall. It is very difficult to get to. You can wriggle your hand down there to take the cap off (make sure the engine is cold) but I don't know how you would ever get a bottle of PS fluid in there. May need to rig some kind of hose extension for the bottle.
