There are sensors that control steering effort (variable assist) and also valving in some cases, one of these has a problem, I would have the system tested to see what the fault is before it developes a problem u can feel.

If the vehicle was in an accident the vehicle needs to be checked for proper alignment, secondly being a car so old chances are that the fluid is very dirty and the sensor is not working properly i would change the sensor on the pump and change the fluid also.

Finding the power steering port in a mr2

The power steering fluid reservoir is to the left of the battery under the front hood. Take out the spare tire to get to the battery, and lift up on the plastic panel to the left of the battery, and you should see it.

I cant find the power steering cantainer on my 1991 mr2

are you sure it has power steering? Most do not. They didn't add it as an option until the later model years... frankly, without the weight on the front tires, it doesn't need it :)

No power steering, warning light comes on MR2 2002

The fluid container is found on the left of the motor which is on your right facing motor. It should be marked but be prepared to wipe it off in order to see it. There a pull cap on top and filling it is while not running is the best. Good Luck!
