The power steering pump and reservoir are located at the front of the engine, on the top, on the passenger side. You should see a belt coming up to it and a pulley on the front of it. There will be a filler neck with a cap on top of it, the cap usually has a little dipstick on it. Remove the cap and top it off with "power steering" fluid that is available at any auto parts store.

Whine and grinding noise when turning steering


Check the power steering system. The rack and pinion gear might be worn out or the over pressure valve is defective that it damages the oil pump. You may have to replace the oil pump for power steering. I hope you are replacing the oil regularly.

Loud grinding noise under hood, oil like substance on a belt, Power Steering Stiff, has PS fluid


Almost sound like your rack and pinion cylinder has gone bad. I would start by cleaning the area real well to get rid of the oil. With the car running have someone sit inside and turn the wheels from left to right while you stand and watch to see if you can see oil leaking and from where and also to see if you can tell where the grinding is coming from. Please do not try to clean the engine with it running as you will get burned from heat and your clothes may become tangled in moving parts.

Hearing some loud grinding noise while steering..


I would suspect your brake pads are worn out especially if you also hear the grinding noise when braking. If you only hear it when turning then have your wheel bearings inspected. Also check the power steering fluid level. It can also be the CV joints are worn.

A kind of grinding sound when turning and some leaking oil


Power steering grinding noise can be ok, or it could be pump wear. The only way to tell is if the power steering oil looks sort of metalic, from tiny bits of metal in it.

And by the way, power steering oil is red, so easy to distinguish from engine oil. But a few leaks are ok as long as you can keep the level up.

As long as you keep the fluids up, you can wait until it gets worse. A bad pump will get very noisy, and there is no reason to change it before then. The metal won't hurt anything.
