Just went to a dealer today for my 2000 regal. It took them a while, but they showed me where my power steering cap was.
It is black and very hard to see. You need a small flashlight (LED recommended), and then need to look on the left side behind the engine and in front of where the glove box is. WAY down, under some hoses, and adjacent to the engine is the power steering cap (I'd estimate about 8-10" down). The best way to see it is to lean into the engine from the front while standing to the left of the center of the car. Lean forward and place the flashlight pointing down and slightly to the left behind the engine and at a level just below the block. Good luck!!
The PS reserviour is hard to find stand at your rs fender (passenger side) and look to the left side of the engine its under some stuff tucked away I dont remember what its under but you can hurt your wrist getting the lid off its there and excessable from under the hood

Re: power steering fluid
Not knowing this particular car, but cars similar, I'll tell you what I know. The power steering fluid goes into the power steering pump, which is connected to the serpentine belt... provided it HAS power steering.

The power sterring fluid goes directly into the top of the pump located on the pully side of the engine.
Once you've located the power steering filler cap - which is on the passenger side just behind and under the alternator (I had to use a flashlight to find mine but it's visible if you lean over the front fender - passenger side) - the rest was easy. There is a cross brace by the firewall that I had to remove so I could get to the filler cap. The cross brace is held on by 4 nuts - 1/2" or 13mm - and removing them and the brace allows fairly easy access to the filler cap. Remove the cap and fill. I'd recommend using a small funnel since it's virtually impossible to get the power steering fluid bottle behind the alternator and around several hoses. A funnel made it a cinch. Check to be sure you don't over fill, replace the cross brace and you're finished. If you find this helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated for the free advice
You will find the power steering pump at the front of the engine, ( that is to say where the belts are ). It is a black plastic knob with a dip stick attached. Remove it, wipe it and reinsert it with the engine off. Remove it again and note the level on the level indicator on the stick. Use only GM fluids. If you still can't find it then think backwards..There are ony so many things that you can fill under the hood. Engin oil, Transmission fluid, Windshield washer fluid, brake fluid. If you find all of them pretty much the only on let is steering fluid.
Under the hood at the place where the steering axel comes from the inside is a drum-like fixture approx. 12 inches diameter and some 4 inches thick. This is the vacuum booster for the steering. It takes the vacuum from the braking system.
The power steering fluid goes into a container you also find under the hood marked usually with 'power steering' or a wheel-symbol.
in the reservoir that says power steering fluid only on the cap should be on the passenger side of the car. either down by the power steering pump or up on the inner fender depending on which engine you have.
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)
The power steering pump is located under the alternator near the firewall. It is hard to get to so you most likely need a funnel with a flex pipe to reach it without making a huge mess. I hope this is helpful.
