Do yourself a favor and change your PS reservoir and fluid (use ATF). Power steering pump failures on these cars is very common and can be hastened by contaminated fluid. Check all the connections and hoses for leaks too. You can find lots if DIY info here on fuild changing and pump and reservoir replacement.
