Question about 1988 Mitsubishi Pickup
Loss of brake power reversing with trailer. Pads ok fluid reservoir is full no visible leaks The pedal is a little sponge but had to floor it to stop reversing down hill
Probably you have internal vacuum leak, check the pipe from engine to the brake booster, if its ok then the booster will be faulty

SOURCE: Abnormal clutch pedal operation
You've replaced the master, the slave, now I would check to see if the throwout fork will move by hand. If you can move the fork by hand I would say that your pressure plate and or throwout bearing are worn out. First try to just gravity bleed the system. If that doesnt work, it may be time for a clutch, pressure plate, and bearing. The pressure plate spring pushes the pedal back up and depending on how many miles and driving habit those little arms on it break off and just wear out. I hope this helps you.

Bad internal seal which does not show externally. Piston is just sliding through the brake fluid instead of pushing it. Car that old most likely worth your while to replace the master and the slave cylinder while you are at it.
Be prepared it may well share a reservoir with the brake system, or you may have to buy a sealed unit and replace the whole master/slave/line at once.

The very first thing you must have done with a problem like this is have the Powertrain control computer tested for fault codes, it is the main control of the system ans it will record fault codes for whatever is causing this, once the codes are read with a special scanner then a trained technician will decide what needs to be repaired to correct the problem. Guessing is not an option here, the cost of repair is just to high to randomly replace parts with the fault code testing and subsequent diagnosis and testing.

chances are its not the power steering motor at all, Its more than likely the steering rack itself. Normally after a while the seals degraded and tends to leak air and then fluid. More than likely you need to replace the seals or in a bad case the rack itself. Its a bit complexed for a quick fix but your local mechanic should be able to do this for you..
