Power Steering Issue

I have a 2010 G6 and i'm trying to find where to put the power steering fluid into? Anyone know where this is under the hood?

So assuming you have a V6 with hydraulic steering (you did not specify), you should not be low on PS fluid. That would indicate a leakage problem. Maybe that oil change outfit was BS-ing you to pump up the bill. What engine do you have? The reservoir, if you have one, is on the firewall. Check your owner's manual for a diagram.

I have a 4 cylinder actually. Would that change anything?

Then you have electric power steering & it uses no fluid.
