    this sounds stupid but have you checked the fluid in the reservoirs they both get differnt type of fluid. and can you comfirm that the pumps are spinning while the engine is running

  • chrisbock Jun 23, 2009

    ok! There should be no corralation between you PS and PB i am un aware of any vehical that has the same pump for PS and PB they use different fluid to make them work. I may be wrong but i have never heard of that.

the brake booster is not working. check the vacuum hoses to see if they are sucking while the car is running. just pull the hose from the brake booster. if you got good vacuum the booster could be bad. if its hydraulic the power sterring pump runs the brakes and I had to change my pump on my truck. I had no steering assist either so it was easy to figure out the pump broke

LOST MY POWER STERRING AND POWER BRAKES ON MY


check for a blown power steering line, lack of fluid in the power steering reservoir, and check to see if the pump is blown. i believe the brake boost on this truck is assisted by the pressure and flow of the power steering pump. also check for leaks on steering gear box

Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.

Hard to turn the steering wheel?


on the astro vans they used a hydroboost power brake booster which is driven off the power sterring pump. If you are having brake and steering problems you should check to make sure your belt is still on if it is you probably need a new powersteering pump. You may also check your power sterring pump pulley.if this helps please rate
