If u have the original owners manual it would show the location, but unfortunately most people throw them out, and u probably bought the car w/ no manual. So, the power steering pump is powered by a belt that spins a round pulley on the pump. There should be a screw off cap (about the same size as your oil fill cap on the engine) where u add fluid. So, look for this pump by looking at the belts where they attach to pulleys and spin the different components. If U could post several pictures I can help u find it. Find it asap, as u can damage the pump if u run it w/ low fluid.

SOURCE: power steering leak
Check the pump front seal, Wipe down the hoses and check the crimp fittings for leakage Also look carefully at the steering gear, the fitings and pitman arm seal ( this one is on the bottom) and the seal where the steering column goes in.

Make sure that your vehicle is parked on a level surface and the engine is cool before you check fluid levels. Power steering fluid and other fluids read at different levels when warm instead of cool. Locate the power steering fluid reservoir. It is located under the hood of your Toyota Corolla on the passenger side next to the engine. The reservoir is connected to the power steering pump. Remove the cap and use the dipstick to check the fluid level. For the most accurate reading, clean off the dipstick with a rag first, then re-insert and remove for the fresh reading. Add automatic transmission fluid or power steering fluid approved for use in Toyota vehicles if the fluid is below the low level mark. Add fluid gradually to keep for over filling the reservoir.
this will help.thanks.
