Power steering pump is weak. If a hydraulic gauge were placed on the pump, you would find it only able to produce about 200-400 psi at an idle. PS requires up to 1500psi. A new pump would produce 1500psi at an idle so replace the pump and you will be fine. By revving up the motor you are able to make the pump put out more psi. The pump is defective internally. Get a good one from the junkyard. Most PS pumps last the life of the vehicle.

Diesel. Reduce power lite turned on. Shut off engine and started back up - lite is off. Can it be driven?


Jerry, Drive to a good shop. So many things can cause reduced power light unfortunately. The first step would be to get the truck hooked up to a scanner/computer and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. One thing that you could try is to drain the water from the water separator that is mounted on the frame under drivers front door. If the PCM picks up on water, power is reduced until water is removed/drained. It could be an exhaust sensor that is reading faulty. Unfortunately from here its impossible to tell you exactly what the fault is because there are just so many engine sensor inputs that could cause your problem. Check the attached links, forums,instruction and guides, Good luck

Power steering fluid is full? Sounds like it might be a power steering pump. It has hydroboost brakes that are controlled by the Power steering.

I have a 2006 F250, 6.0 diesel (power stroke) it was running fine and then suddenly started running real rough (similar to the way a gasoline engine runs when it's not firing on all cylinders.) also there...


This is very complex system. Best to have it checked by qualified diesel mechanic who has the proper equipment to check out all the systems, that could be related to the problem you are having. Just to start throwing parts at it can become very expensive very fast

Loss of brakes and steering


sounds like you've got a bad power steering pump. i'm not familiar with your vehicle, but some brake boosters run off vacume from the engine and others run off the power steering pump and it's called hydro boost. if you have the hydro boost type, this is most likely your issue.

My brake pedal slowly goes to the floor and the engine make a whining noise on my 2001 F-250 diesel. Why?


wellyou may have one of a couple of different problems.
1. if you have recently wrked on the brake system you have air in the system and need to bleed it.

2. if you are lossing fluid you have a leak in a line or caliper or rear brake cylnder

3. your Master cylender is going bad

your engine is making noise do to the power boost on the brakes being maxed out
