Is the power sterring fluid supposed to be light colored? If it is not could the copper tubing heating up cause it to change colot and if so is that a bad thing?

During it's use, the fluid darkens. You can suck it out of the reservoir and put in fresh fluid. There shouldn't be any copper tubing. It was probably used as a cheap repair. Usually there are rubber hoses between the pump and the steering rack.
