Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Check the fluid level and add as much as is appropriate. Keep in mind that you must use Audi/VW power steering fluid, as it's a proprietary mixture and use of "normal" fluid will ruin the steering rack (that'll run you over a grand to replace). Do this soon - extended periods of running with low PS fluid will burn up the pump.

Have someone sit in the car and turn the wheel completely right and left while you are looking at the lines coming to and from the resevoir for leaks. Even if fluid is not coming out a small crack letting out air only may be allowing it to lose pressure. Also look for build up on the power steering rack as it may be leaking directly from it around the boots. I had to replace all the lines for my vw
