The min and max level on the engine oil dipstick give you a "range" where checking the oil hot or cold wont matter (naturally the oil will be higher when the oil is hot). The power steering reservoir has a black screw off cap in the engine compartment ( I had one of these cars and can't remember where it is), and should not require frequent topping up unless there is a leak. Ask any one at a auto parts store they will come out and show you.

A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.
