Is that oem fluid? My car is 6spds not automanic.
I'm sure you figured it out already that the ps system uses ATF. Anyway, I'd go with Sammy on this. If you don't see any changes in the PS performance (as in you're not having problems, just the leak), I'd just fill it back up and see where they're going.

How i flushed my powersteering fluid

Its a two man job and need like two ft of 3/8 or 1/2 hose.

Pull fuse for the fuel pump

Pull hose clamp that runs in between the radiator and bumper on passenger side. One side of hose will shot out thats the side that gets the hose to drain pan. Dont remember the side and its going to be a messy job.

Bump start car and as car turns over pour. Pour fast cuz it will drain fast. I bought 5 bottles of nissan ps fluid flushed with 3.

Pull the drain hose. Put back together and top off.

Like everyone said try and look for leaks from the hoses and rack. Look around the inner tierods

1/2 pvc flex hose. I use the same hose to fill tranny too. Filling redline mt85 with ease
