Atf is fine for use in Power Steering except for Honda (requiring Honda fluid), and Audi (requiring mineral 7.1 or 11s) The major difference between atf and p/s fluid is that atf has friction modifers. harmless for hydrulics, nessacary for transmissions to shift smooth.

First step would be to check if you have enough power steering fluid in the system. If it is low then fill it up to the fill line and it would probably be a good idea to check for leaks in the system. If you check the fluid and it is good, then there would be only one other option, and that would be the power steering pump.
