I just replaced the springs in my 94 chev silverado and now I have no power steering, fluid boils and over heats really quickly, replaced pump and hoses, is it possible the steering box could have a b

if it was no problem before the spring change then go back to what you did with the suspension as it is possible that you are overloading the pump. Other than that for the oil to heat up and boil there has to be energy going into the oil Pump spinning under pressure with no release of the oil. Oil pumps have no pressure unless the steering valves are up set where they close off and move the steering until you stop moving the wheel . At this point the valves open and release the pressure back to the reservoir

Is the power steering pump in a chevy 1/2 ton 5.7 l 1998 electronic?

vladkov your an idiot power steering systems run on hydraulic power. The pump is driven by the engine with forces fluid through the gear and assists your steering efforts. I have changed my steering gear twice and my pump. There's nothin electronic about it. Steering assist is electronic and thats a whole diifferent ball game, it only comes on newer vehicles. Changing a p/s pump on a 98 chev is pretty simple, you just need a puller to pull the pulley off so you can get at the mounting bolts. Take those and your 2 lines off (making sure to mark which one goes where) and that's pretty much it.

2004 chev silverado ext cab. No Power steering

Hi Hollings,

You description was very good, I need to ask for a specific.

When you turn to the left, the wheel is stiff like the engine is off or does it turn smoothly but the vehicle doesn't turn or seem to respond.

I'm trying to rule out broken mounts,

Also, if the wheel is all the way to the right, is it difficult turning back to the left the whole way, or half way. See where I'm going.?

Please comment back your findings

Best regards

Power steering & power brakes

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.
