Default The power steering fluid is leaking on my Honda Civic, How much would it cost me to fix the leak ?

I think my only vehicle, honda civic 07' might be leaking. What can I do ? Few days ago I went to a mechanic, He adviced me to get the power steering fluid , which was only $3.50 and he asked me to bring it back to flush out the system. I didn't want to do it because it was $70. I can't pull that amount at the moment.

But I need this vehicle for everything! including my interviews and training classes I am going to ..

How much do you think it'll cost to fix it if I take it to the mechanic to fix the leak ( looks like it's leaking from multiple places, if that's even possible ) . Can I fix it my self?

If generic power steering fluid was added earlier it will be expensive to fix. Honda power steering is not compatible with generic fluid and the fluid will attack the seals in the pump and the rack, which would account for leaks from multiple places.
