The reservoir is mounted on top of PS pump. (You need to find a new mechanic) Check online parts store for pics of your unit - you'll see pic.

Replacing power steering resevoir and filter.

Firstly, I've never heard of a power steering system with a filter in it. I see no reason for said filter. And you never have to flush a power steering system. Any time I add fluid, I never use power steering fluid in a bottle that's labeled to be for that. It's much more expensive than transmission fluid, which is the same fluid. Unless of course these newer vehicles have added some things that really are not needed. Like a power steering fluid filter!!!! There's no such thing. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but you're going to have to prove it to me.

I have a 2002 dodge caravan sport with a 3.3 engine and my power steering resovoir is empty and a puddle of power steering fluid on the ground. what is the cost and repair

Hard to guess the cost until we know the component that has failed. It could be; power steering pump, resevoir, hoses, presure switch, or steering rack. Some one will have to climb under there and see which one it is.

The most exspensive one is the steering rack which would cost about 1000.00 - 1200.00 to replace and it requires the vehicle get an alignment when the job is finished.

Power steering went out on a 2002 trailblazer. the serpentine belt was slipping off so I replaced the serpentine belt and pulley tensioner, still out. Pulled the steering pump, pulley shaft was broken....

Have you checked your tie rods? Possibility one is either bent or broken, I've seen it before on TB's. That pulley shaft is a common problem to break, especially when cold out. PS pumps/pulley shafts and tie rods will snap if doing donuts in the snow with the steering wheel cranked, or off-roading. The PS is completely mechanical, no fuses or relays.

I have a 2004 trailblazer my steering wheel pulses and my fluid level was low but no evedence of a leak

As you brakes wear down your fluid level goes down with them. The pulsing is probably tires.
