    If you open your hood, you should be able to see a reservoir where your power steering fluid is located. (if you need help locating where it is, it wills say in your car manual). Check your power steering fluid level. If it is low, you should top it off with the appropriate fluid. If your car doesn't have any noise coming from the power steering system (usually a squealing sound), and you have your fluid topped off, you should be okay to drive it until you get it into a shop on Monday.

    Depending on the size of your leak, you should periodically check your fluid level to make sure it doesn't get low.
