My power steering is groaning before it warms up. I feel dumb but I can't find where to check / fill fluid?

Hydraulic groan can be from a varnish that coats the stationary and moving parts in the pump. I used Lucas power steering treatment but any brand should work.
A guy who fixes pumps told me a lot of the pumps he sees have this varnish.
Rpms that are too low also make pumps groan. I've always ran mine at 800rpm at idle
