Sounds like you must have the 3800 engine. the power steering pump and resevoir is below the alternator this is located on upper corner of engine by the fire wall reach your hand down under it and you will feel the p/s cap you will need a long funnel to get fluid in it.
With engine off power stering pump located on engine. remove cap. cap will have a dip stick attached add "GM" power stering fluid a little at a time. wipe dip stick clean reinsert and remove check by using the high oil line the the marking on the dip stick. do not over fill
If you reach down behind the engine on the passenger side you will feel the cap-it is pressure sensitive. you can take it off with one turn. it is a tight fit but is possible. then to add fluid you need a funnel with a long stem. you can feel when the funnel is in and add your fluid. After you add fluid replace the cap and start the car. take a flashlight and shine down near the pump to make sure you are not spraying fluid all over everything. On the passenger side, near the firewall and down a foot or two, you'll find it. You can access it from above, but it isn't easy or you can jack up the car and remove the wheel and reach from the bottom to get to the power steering pump. Good luck and sorry for the bad news.
Locate the cap to the power steering fluid reservoir
Remove cap and fill reservoir with GM Power Steering Fluid (P/N 89021184) or any fluid a knowledgeable parts department says is compatible. It may not look like much but there are a few dozen steering fluids available out there and lots of systems aren't compatible with many of them (wrong fluid will disintegrate seals, pumps, etc...)
