Why would you have to top up your power steering fluid all the time if there are no leaks?

Are there any puddles under your car after you park it ? if yes then you do have a leak , most of the time it a presure line at the steering gearbox

Check again carefully...Ask someone to turn the wheel to full lock on one side whilst you look under the bonnet (hood?) to see if there is any fluid squirting out from a pressure hose. oes the vehicle have a steering rack? If so, the seals could be leaking into the rubber boots (gaiters?) and filling them up but not leaking out onto the ground just yet.

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

could be several places, power steering hose, rack and pinion (or steering gear box) or power steering pump.

It's either transmission fluid or power steering fluid. Some fords use transmission fluid for the power steering. Check both fluid levels as per your owners Manual

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.

If you have an electric power steering system, that means you HAVE NO FLUID. Therefore no fluid to change in the 1st place.
