It very well could be a brake master cylinder issue.
all of the 1 ton and up , 3/4 ton if diesel , have hydraulic vacuum assist brake masters. that run on the power steering pump, if one part of the system is malfunctioning , it could very well effect the part of the system.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leak

The power steering pump is one of the devices that the fan belts operate. Follow all of the belts and note the pullys they run over. One of these devices will have two hoses about 1" in diameter comming out of it. Typically this is also where you fill the fluid when it is low, but not always. If you fill the fluid at a container on the side of the engine compartment, it will have a hosee that runs down to this PS pump as well.
Check for wetness along the lines especially at the terminal end of each line whre they meet the pump and where they meet the power steering box or rack. You may have to get under the car for this. If your car has a steering rack (about 2 feet long and three iN in diameter, look for fluid leaking at either end of the rack You can but rebuilt racks and have them installed by most garages. If that is the case have it done byy a garage that also does front end alignments as some adjustment in this are my be required

Good Luck

If the reservoir is full, than the pump is bad, most likely worn pump seals. Check pump hoses for any air leaks.

To bleed the power pump, turn the wheel fully left, then fully right, SEVERAL times.
This is the correct procedure to bleed the air from the pump.

Was driving straight at 40 mph and car steering jerked hard to the right and then left


You\'d better have your rack and pinion (the steering gear) checked. That is where the power steering pump sends the fluid to and returns from there. Something is wrong for it to jerk like that. There must be some undue pressure for it to push the cap up-something like a blockage, perhaps. I would have a shop look at it. It may be time for a new rack and pinion gear. If it comes to that, be sure and have the old PS pump and lines and PS reservoir flushed or cleaned out. You don\'t want any of that old fluid to ruin the new rack. Check for dirt, crud, or sludge in the fluid.

I have a leak coming from the under the right side of my car and i am constantly putting power steering fluid and the low brake fliud light came on 2006 ford taurus


you have a power steering leak either the pump itself or one of the power steering hoses has a hole in it.the low brake fluid light is probably the fluid sensor in the master cylinder providing the fluid level is not low.the sensors tend to stick and need to be tapped or pushed with your finger until it frees itself.

Replace power steering pump


The procedure is as follows:--- 1) Locate the power steering pump on the driver's side of the motor, which is mounted in front of the engine, near the top.2) You will see a fill spout coming out of the pump with a cap on it that says "power steering fluid."
3) Remove the negative battery cable from the battery
4) Remove the cap from the power steering pump,allow the fluid to drain into the pan.
5) Loosen the bolts that hold the power steering pump to the engine block with a socket wrench. Once the pump is loose, remove the belt from the pulley on the power steering pump. Remove the pump from the engine compartment.
6) Insert new power steering pump in reverse.
7) Reattach the power steering hoses and verify they are secure. Fill the new power steering pump with fluid to the full line shown on the dipstick on the back of the cap for your power steering pump. Place the cap back on the power steering pump.

I came back from a 4 day trip and when I started the hybrid, I had no power steering or power brake assist.


Check your power steering fluid level. The power brakes are hydraulic assist and get hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. If the fluid level is good you may have a bad pump. If the fluid level is low fill it up and find the leak .

Hello hummelsautob.
Changing the power steering cooler can't allow air into the brake system. Two different fluid systems.
Your F250 has it's brake assist powered by the power steering pump.
Instead of using a vacuum assist it uses the hydraulic power from the pump.
When refilling your pump you have gotten air mixed in with the fluid. This turns it into a consistency something like whipped cream.
When in this state it isn't effective. Let it sit for a couple hours and let the air bubble out of the fluid. Recheck your level after this as it will drop.
This will make your brakes feel normal again.
Just a note on adding fluid to an empty power steering pump.
Add fluid to the reservoir but not to the top, turn the steering wheel back and forth slowly with the engine off. This will keep the fluid from foaming.

check to see if you have power steering fluid. if your low fill it up. (most cases thats all it is) check around for any leaks or parts to the power steering unit for and damage (hoses, pump, rer, rack and pinion, any seals or such. you might have a leak somewhere. when your looking for leaks fill the res up with power steering fluid. turn the car on. and have someone turn the wheel so get the fluid to build up pressure in the system.
