This sounds like a vacuum, or fuse problem. Also check your ground and battery connections.

My stearing oil leak away from my stearing system

Inspect the source of leakage. (Power steering pump,
clamps, discharge or high pressure pipe, suction or low side pipe, rack and pinion assembly).
- Vibrating while braking means the front wheel brake rotors are warped or rear brake drums are eccentric. (Tooling is required)

I have a 2004 duramax, while driving the brakes seized up on all four, I have low fluid in power stearing and notice what I thought was a vacume hose for brake system, goes directly in the back of resavor...

Hello Hyde Gillen,

What you don't know...

There are DIFFERENT types (other than vacuum )
More Information for ACDELCO 1780683

YOURS is HYDRAULIC assisted... meaning... when
your HYDRAULIC pump fails... (not power steering)
EXACTLY like AIR-BRAKES... (Compressor fail)...

The BRAKES get applied...!!

>> AS designed...!! <<

You CANNOT let your HYDRAULIC systems fail...

You cannot even steer your vehicle...
(don't worry about yourself)... TRY WORRING about
the OTHERS innocents you are putting in DANGER.

I think you are on the RIGHT TRACK...
truck is fine... YOU just need to expand your
understanding of AUTOMOTIVE mechanics.

Good work... KEEP STUDYING.

Power steering is not smooth

if the pump has been damaged you might need to replace it ,if its good what you need to do is feel up the pump ,put the cap on it,get someone to help start the truck our car have them turn the stearing wheel right then left ,you do this for about 5 or 6 min, than you brake lose the presure side of your power stearing hose do not take it off just a nough too let the air and a little bit of fluid come might hafe to do this a few times .

This car is new to me had work done on stearing last weak ? what kind of fluid dose it need for powerstearing I have heard it is not same as most cars it started making noise when turning after 200 miles...

no no no and not use brake fluid in the steering, this will eat away the seals and blow the system no way should brake fluid be used, you use auto transmission fluid or correct stearing fluid normally dexron2 but no brake fluid...hope this helps

Power steering light comes on and then I loose power steering

Gonna take a gander at a guess, and say a power stearing pump. Are you losing power brakes at the same time? If so, probably a serpentine belt. Or a loose pulley (bearing) in there. If only power stearing, check the power stearing fluid first.

1997 1500 4x4 pulls to the right

Sounds like a brake caliper hanging up. Check the slides to see that they're smooth working. Jack the right side up & make sure the front wheel turns fairly easy. If it's dragging alot then the caliper slide is fubar or the brake hose is collapsed internaly. Replace the hose if that's the case.

Power breaks and stearing not working

This is a hydro boost brake system that runs of your power steering so if the power steering fluid is low then you will have no brakes and no steering or if the ps. pump stops pumping then the same thing will happen check for proper fluid level check for broken ps belt if they are find then suspect a bad ps. pump:]
