power steering fluid

I have a '99 Chevy Cavalier. Back in the winter, I had to top up the PSF reservior, due to squealing. I did this for 2 consecutive days, and the problem seemed to go away. No more squealing. Recently the problem has come back. Im now adding half a bottle of PSFluid every day. I dont notice a leak, so where could it be going? Also, how costly of a repair am I looking at? Thanks. Dan

You have a leak. You just haven't found it. Have you tried some of the psf with stop leak additive? It may help with the seals. Replacing the psp doesn't have to be that expensive, just a pita due to the tight spaces.
