You need to recheck fluid levels and find out which one is low. PS fluid loss will result in a very expensive repair bill because the pump and steering rack will need to be replaced if they run out of fluid.
You were right i had a leak in my power steering hose cost me $250 to get it fixed but its working just fine now. Thank You for your good advice.
