1994 Chevrolet astro van awd

I think that van has "hydroboost" brake assist instead of vacuum powered assist. Hydroboost uses pressure from the power steering pump to assist the brakes. However, I am unsure where the problem is. It could be a leak in the hydroboost itself, a leak in the line, a bad pump, or as easy as low power steering fluid.

You may have a internal leak in the master cylinder remove it from the hydro booster and check to see if there is any fluid coming out the back if not the inner seals are bypassing that's why you got no pressure.

Bleeding air from system after replacing hydroboost

A GM truck?
The hydroboost won't need bled as far as the steering fluid.
If the brake lines have been unhooked and the master cyl is not new,
easiest way is just loosen the master cyl. cover and open the wheel
bleeders one at a time,gravity will do the rest,just wait till clean air
free fluid comes out of each one. Remember to keep the master full.
Takes awhile but not pumping the pedal keeps the air from getting
whipped up in the lines.

My 2000 3500CK break master cylinder is leaking fluid out of the drip hole on the bottom of the cylinder?

They are designed to do that when they go bad. That means it is time to get it replaced. 2 things need to be considered with your truck: 1st, does it use a hydroboost brake system? If it is a diesel, than yes, but some gas engines did as well. If you have lines running from your power steering pump to the back of your master cylinder, it is a hydroboost. 2nd, does your truck have anti-lock brakes? If you answered yes to either, than, unfortunately, you will need to get or pay someone with a scan tool to bleed the system after it is replaced. However, you may be able to get it real close yourself if the brake lines leaving the master cylinder are angled downwards at all. If they are, then you can bench bleed the new cylinder and install it yourself, and as long as fluid did not leak out of the lines, you should be alright.
