It's a 4cyl. I do not know where the leak is within the power steering system, I just know that it started making sounds when turning/steering, so I looked in reservior, it was low, bought some, filled up, puddle under car, and reservoir empty again.

The most common problem with power steering leaks on this vehicle are with the high pressure and low pressure lines going from the power steering pump to the rack. These lines can be purchased from the dealer has a complete assembly. The power steering pumps themselves don't normally leak. In some cases we have seen where the power steering racks themselves will leak but this is easy to see because the boots will fill up with fluid and the boots will start to leak where the inner tie rod ends are.
