The most common reason for power steer failure is fluid leaks. On power steering pump, you should check behind p/s pulley for leak at the shaft. On the rack and pinion(steering gear) check rubber boots at both ends and check for leaks where steering shaft is connected to rack and pinion input shaft. Check pressure hose at crimp fittings for leaks.

Where is the power steering reservior on the 1990 Nissan 300zx turbo model?

the power steering reservoir would be to the front left (green casing with black top) this would be you facing the car from under the hood. the hose below it should route you to the power steering pump. it is also recommended to use ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) and NOT power steering fluid in the reservoir (from personal and professional experience, it leaks far less)this is what it would look like... but this is NOT the same car, but the part in question looks identical)
