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.

Why isn't my power steering working on a 1993 mercury cougar?

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.

Engine oil vs power steering fluid?

Each is designed for its own place in the vehicle. I would definitely avoid putting any power steering fluid in the crankcase. I would also avoid putting motor oil in the power steering. Power steering fluid is generally thinner than motor oil and would not be an advisable alternative to put in the crankcase. Now motor oil is thicker and can potentially damage components in the power steering with prolonged use. The detergents in motor oil may cause different issues with seals in the power steering, including leaks. On older vehicles the power steering generally called for automatic transmission fluid, but using power steering fluid in its place shouldn't hurt and may actually help.
