Its vary hard for me to turn my steringwheel and i put power stering in it and it just leaks out?
If fluid is leaking out, you'll need to find the leak and fix it by repairing or replacing the leaking component.. It could be the reservoir, the pump, the connecting hoses, or the steering rack. You may need to raise the car and get underneath it to find exactly where the fluid is leaking. The pump runs off a belt towards the rear from the engine. It has hoses connecting it up to the reservoir, and down to the steering rack. Check the condition of the hoses along their entire length, and check that the ends are fastened securely. If you are lucky, the leak is coming from a cracked or loose hose, which is very easy to replace. Replacing the pump is not too difficult. It requires loosening and removing the connecting hoses from the pump, then loosening the tensioner/adjustment bolt and taking the pump's drive belt off the pulley, then removing the hinge mounting bolt for the pump. Have a catch pan ready to collect any fluid that drips out. Replacing the steering rack is a major job. You'll find all the details in a service manual.
Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.
