Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Diamante
If your power steering pump is not functioning properly, it doesn't matter how much fluid is in the reservoir, it will not work. Have the pump checked out.

Chances are its not the power steering motor at all, Its more than likely the steering rack itself. Normally after a while the seals degraded and tends to leak air and then fluid. More than likely you need to replace the seals or in a bad case the rack itself. Its a bit complexed for a quick fix but your local mechanic should be able to do this for you..

Open the hood and find the reservoir for the power-steering fluid. It will probably be labeled on the cap. If not, look near the belts for a pulley-driven pump with a plastic or metal reservoir on top.
Open the cap. It may unscrew or pop off.
Check the fluid level (see illustration in Step 2). If the reservoir is made of clear plastic, look for full and low indicator lines on the outside. The cap will have a small dipstick attached if the reservoir isn't see-through. Wipe the dipstick clean with a rag and put the cap back on. Remove the cap and check the level on the dipstick. Your car may have both full hot and full cold indicators, as the fluid level will vary depending on whether the engine is cold or hot.
Add power-steering fluid as needed, using a funnel to avoid spilling. If the engine is hot, fill to the hot line. If the engine is cold, fill to the cold line.
Put the reservoir cap back on.
