SOURCE: power steering
MOST LIKELY THIS IS THE POWER STEERING PUMP AND THE ELECTRIC ASSIST FAN UNIT CONNECTED TO IT. OFTEN THE FAN COVER WILL OR CAN GET CLOGGED, BUT MORE LIKELY IT IS THE PUMP. IF IT GOES OUT IT USUALLY DO SO SLOWLY. THE STEERING WILL BE HARDER BUT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STEER. THE NORMAL COST FOR THE REPAIR IS $1000 WITH LABOR. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG, BUT CONSIDER BUYING THE PART ONLINE AND DOING IT YOURSELF OR TAKE THE PART TO A COMPETENT GARAGE
AND HAVE THEM DO IT.YOU COULD SAFE HALF THE COST!

it is normal to lose your steering, bcos it it being powered by the engine,hence it can go down when the main power source dies (ENGINE)

This pump sits down below tha alternator. If it does not have a remote resevoir than the resevoir sits on top of the pump. It is a pain to get to.

The reservoir should be located under the hood on the passenger side, above serpentine belt. Guide your eyes backwards towards the mid section of the engine on the passenger side. the small reservoir will have a small turn cap on top. (passenger side off vehicle)
