Exactly what is meant by 'the power steering doesn't work'? Does this mean only whaen making a turn, does this mean during all conditions?
If the steering fluid is full - with no leaks in the system - then the issue is most likely related to a worn or slipping steering pump drive belt, worn belt tensioner, or worn idler pulley. For the replacement parts, try the many on-line parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com - to list only two. For example, they (RockAuto) list the power steering belt from around $4.30 and the belt idler pulley from around $25.00 for your vehicle.
