Do not run the engine. You need to drain out the fluid antifreeze mixture.You can then refill the power steering fluid.
Synthetic power steering fluid from the dealer only. Do NOT mix drugstore power steering fluid, ATF, or non-synthetic fluid in your steering system. Damage to the seals/gaskets could result in leaks.

If the power steering fluid leaks out the steering would become very stiff, and perhaps "lock" if the car were parked.

Yes, something wrong in the rack and pinion can cause a loss of power steering fluid. The failure of seals in any part of the steering system can cause leaks. Further diagnosis is recommended to isolate the problem.
pour the power steering fluid directing into where you pull the dipstick out to check the power steering fluid.
What will happen if u I added power steering fluid to a leaking power steering pump
Transmission fluid should not be used in place of power steering fluid. Power steering fluid is less compressible so that it can transfer power to different systems. Transmission fluid is meant for lubrication and has higher dimulsibility than power steering fluid.
You really have to just find out where it is leaking and what it will take to repair it. GoodluckJoe
both power steering fluid or ATF, (automatic transmission fluid) will work, for they are both hydraulic fluids. ATF is just dyed red to detect leaks in the transmission and P.S. fluid is clear. Check owners manual.

Red is the "normal" power steering fluid. If you can't get "power steering fluid," Dexron automatic transmission fluid is the same stuff. Clear is Honda power steering fluid.
Power steering fluid is basically clear. Some cars use transmission fluid in the power steering which is dark red. You can use power steering fluid in cars that use transmission fluid but not the reverse. The cap of the reservoir should say power steering fluid only.
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.
