hello If you're sure that you topped up the radiator expansion tank and not some other fluid reservoir then adding anti-freeze is absolutely fineif the steering is gettign heavy I'd suspect that you may have added coolant to the power steering reservoir? in which case drain it all off and refresh the fluid with new, thsi may need a couple of drain and fills to get rid of all the coolant
