Most likely is the power steering pump. There is also a revised flow control valve that threads into the back of the pump and a revised steering gear to address a lack of steering assist that could occur if the brakes are applied and turning the steering wheel with the vehicle stopped or during parking lot type maneuvers.

Sounds to me like your power steering pump has gone bad. Being a vehicle with a hydro-boost brake system that would explain the power brake failure. Hydro-boost brake systems utilize pressurized power steering fluid to provide brake assist. In most lighter GVWR vehicles this function is performed by engine vacuum. There is a recall on certain Silverados and Sierras that addresses a faulty check ball in the booster, but your vehicle is affected by a steering issue as well. This would indicate to me that it is the pump. You can however check online to verify if your vehicle is affected by the recall. Hope this helps.

My 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Diesel instrument panel went completely out and would not accelerate.


check your timing chain its probably broken. diesels have no spark plugs and uses compression ignition and uses a lot of battery charge to turn it over. thats why it sounded like it was dead. if the chain brakes the upper and lower cam and crank shafts aren't in time together so you get no compression ignition. sorry for your troubles and hope i helped

It should like you may have a leak if it took a whole litre. Once you fix the leak you may also find the power steering pump still makes noise. This can be repaired by replacing the pump. I hope this helps.

There is no recall on your truck (it's 10 years old) And your mechanic is correct your brake booster relies on pressure from your power steering pump. Check hose from power steering pump to booster one is either broke or cracked.

02 silverado 2500 duramax- loss of power steering/brakes


I know GM decided to run the brakes and power steering vacumm all off of the power steering pump on some of their trucks. This could really be a big problem because if your power steering quit it would stop supplying your brakes with vacuum to stop the truck. In my experience I would check out the situation with the steering pump. Change it for a new one. Don't take any chances on smashing your truck.

First try rotating the tires to the rear. Does it go away? If you apply the brakes does it pull to the left? Could be a draging caliper or the slides may be hanging up.
