power steering fluid....

(I did the searches, I need more information)
Steering to the right is harder then steering to the left.
I checked my power steering fluid level....and it was just a little bit over the MIN line.
Is this okay? Should the level exactly be in the middle between MIN and MAX?
If I need more ps fluid the manual says that you cannot just add it....so then what else has to be done? flush it totally then add it??

p.s. i thought that if u had ps fluid problems, then steering would be harder both ways?

I dunno if this helps, but on that Car Talk Radio show I heard that if its harder to one side than the other than some hub in the steering got wet or sumpthing...maybe check thair site.

Are you serious???? It doesnt say anything about that in the manual!!! I flushed it and put the regular stuff in 2 weeks ago. Damn it, I wondered why it was green when I drained it.
