I have a power steering leak on my 1998 Toyota Camry. I have been using over the counter stop leaking fluids, but it has not helped. It leaks more during the cold weather as oppose to hot weather. Deme

This answer is for a 2003 Toyota Camry listed by the Asker under the 2001 Toyota Avalon Category
Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram.
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.
Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

SOURCE: The power steering fluid pump
check and see if it is the hose or connection that is leaking. Sometimes a clamp will loosen or a hose crack. If the fluid is leaking from the sreering box /rack, then the best thing to do is replace it with a rebuilt / new unit.
If you just keep adding fluid to compensate for the loss, you might have a very unpleasant surprise one day, and find yourself with little if any, steering.
Really, it's a safety issue, and you should have the problem rectified A.S.A.P.
