It is normally on the left front part of the engine bay. On right hand drive anyway. It should not be hard to find. It's normally a brown coloured flask shapped bottle with a black cap.
You will need ATF fluid to top it up. Don't delay anymore. You may alread have done damage to the steering rack. The rack is obviously leaking so keep an eye on the fluid & if you're topping up more than once every couple of weeks then it's time to have it looked at by a pro as the rack will need replacing.

Best of luck :)

When I turn my steering wheal it makes a hollow sound


Check the power steering for low fluid in the power steering fluid reservoir on the front of the engine. Refer to your owners manual for illustration and location. If the level is low you have a leak, look for a red fluid on the ground under the car when parked.

Where is my power steering pump located? (3100 v6 engine)


It is right on top of the front center of the engine. (Right side of car) It has a cap on top that is marked "POWER STEERING"
If you look in the owner's Manual on page 6-10 there is a picture of the engine compartment with arrows to show you where it is. It is marked by arrow "E".

1997 Buick LeSabre Limited, location of power steering reservoir


If you are looking at the engine, on the left (passenger side) will be the belt. The alternator should be at the top of the belts route. directly below the alt is the tensioner/pulley (small) Below and to the rear of the vehicle is the power steering pump. The resevoir is attached to the pump. If you reach/look over the engine and feel below the heater hoses you will see the p/s pump resevoir cap(kinda hard to see/feel)
