I made a sharp turn today and the steering of the car became very hard. For the past month I have heard a noise when I turn, but nothing too loud. Does this car use power steering fluid? What can be the problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

It is a plastic reservoir about 6" tall with a black plastic screw top located near the left front shock tower.
You can use automatic transmission fluid.
