Question about 1998 Nissan 200SX
Get a good flash light, Have someone start thew car and turn the wheel while you look in the area of power steering fluid leak.. You have to have a local idea of whats wet under the car, With turing the steering wheel back and forth you build up pressure and you should spot it.. It' might be the Steering Rack but most likly a hose..

If you can,wipe all the fluid up then crank up and look,if none comes out,then take a drive and check to see where it's coming from,normally the high pressure hose at the crimp.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leak
The power steering pump is one of the devices that the fan belts operate. Follow all of the belts and note the pullys they run over. One of these devices will have two hoses about 1" in diameter comming out of it. Typically this is also where you fill the fluid when it is low, but not always. If you fill the fluid at a container on the side of the engine compartment, it will have a hosee that runs down to this PS pump as well.
Check for wetness along the lines especially at the terminal end of each line whre they meet the pump and where they meet the power steering box or rack. You may have to get under the car for this. If your car has a steering rack (about 2 feet long and three iN in diameter, look for fluid leaking at either end of the rack You can but rebuilt racks and have them installed by most garages. If that is the case have it done byy a garage that also does front end alignments as some adjustment in this are my be required

SOURCE: Power Steering Fluid
sometimes adding brake fluid to the power steering pump will stop the leak if its not to bad.you may have to keep adding as it leaks down untill you use about a bottle ,before it stops the leak.
