    Could be one of the power steering hoses, the pump or the gear itself you have to wipe it down ( with the engine off ) and try and see exactly which component is bad. All the parts mentioned are available at your local autoparts store. Sometimes you can put in a power steering stop leak and it will seal the o rings.
