You need to locate the Power Steering fluid reservoir. If your looking at the front on the engine, it will be on the right side of the engine, towards the front. It has a black cap. You will need to lift the plastic engine cover up slightly to be able to remove the dipstick. Remove the dipstick and check the fluid level. You will also add the power steering fluid into this reservoir. The dipstick will have 4 markings on it. Min/Max for 'cold', and Min/Max for 'hot'. Dont overfill the reservoir. And that's it.
One word of caution. Take a look at your lower power steering hose. You can see it from the top of the engine area if you look down along the right side of the radiator. There will be a power steering connected to the radiator, and is very prone to coming off! If this hose looks like it is leaking, or starting to come away from the fitting, take it to your dealer to have it replaced! The hose is warrenty up to 100k miles. Good luck.

Try draining the old power steering fluid using a small suction device and refill it with fresh fluid. Then bleed the air out by turning the wheel back and forth several times with the car off. If that does not fix it, a new power steering pump is probably needed.

Classic sign of low steering fluid.
You drain and refill the power steering fluid by disconnecting the return line to the Power steering fluid reservoir and starting the engine and moving the wheel from lock to lock. After doing this (evacuating all of the PS flulid) you need to refill the reservoir and move the wheel from lock to lock to get the air out of the system. It requires a hand held vacuum pump on the reservoir to "suck" all of the air out of the system. It can burn up your PS pump if there is air in the system. A better way to do it is to take a turkey baster and suck as much fluid as you can out of the reservoir and replacing it with clean fluid. If you do this every oil change the fluid will be clear and clean within 4 changes.
