Have you tried turning the wheels back and forth from left to right with the truck sitting still? I would try that and have someone watch the rower steering pump pulley while you are turning the wheels. Is the pulley stopping or slowing, any noises coming from the pump? I know that truck has an automatic tensioner on the belt but, I've seen those tensioners seize up and then the belt can get loose. Another thing to check is the pulley itself, some of those trucks have a plastic pulley. That pulley presses on to the pump shaft and the pulley may be cracked. It's possible the pump is getting bad. It's full of fluid, right?

I just replace the power steering pump and gear box on 98 ram 1500 gas engine. When I apply brakes to turn corner, I lose power steering. Help please!


Unless you have a power steering assisted brake booster more common with a diesel, you may have a new pump issue like the flow control valve in the pump or air in the system yet, check for air bubbles or a milky looking fluid and the correct fluid. Try in a parking lot out of the way of traffic to put in neutral while moving,rev the motor slightly and brake as you would when the PS assist stops,by revving the motor just off idle this will increase the PS pressure it should act normal if it's a flow control issue and if the pump is capable of producing the correct pressure.

Sounds like you need a front axle actuator. This actuator bolts to the side of the front differential housing. It is electrically engaged. You can purchase them online starting at about $40

Therr has to be air in the lines or the pump is about to go. There is a product that I would recomend, but is usually only at a dealer part shop. It is a BG product for power sterring pumps. Costly but well worth it maybe $20 a bottle. I recomend it so much becouse not only will this fix your issue, but you probably will never have to replace that pump this is some good stuff. I would not recomend unless I had tried it myself on a pump that was going out when I first purchased the vehicle aprox 75,000 miles ago. The pump is great has not even wined sence I used the product.

Power steering problem when turning right


I'm not sure if that truck has rack and pinion steering, or a steering sector. In either case, it sounds like you have stuck valve and the hydraulic pressure is fighting you, instead of helping you. When ever you turn the steering wheel the valve is supposed to move and direct the hydraulic oil pressure to help you steer. The valve is built into the sector or the rack and pinion, you may have to replace the assembly. There are companies that recondition those items so you might want to shop around.

1998 gmc 2500 sle 5.7 wont stay running


Theres only one fuel pump relay, unless you have dual tanks. Be sure you have 55-60 psi fuel pressure. I "think" the oil pressure switch supplies power to the fuel pump after the engine is running.

sounds like you are suffering from low fuel pressure, with a proper gauge you can check to be certian that you have addaquit pressure. at idle you should have 14-18 psi.
