First thing to check would be the power steering pump. Check the fluid level and with the truck running, you should see fluid moving in the reservoir.

Power steering fluid is full? Sounds like it might be a power steering pump. It has hydroboost brakes that are controlled by the Power steering.

I have noticed today, that when i have pressed the brakes it seems there is no power brake. This has happened several times today, and this is the first time.


If you have vacuum brakes then you might wnat to check for a vacuum,leak. If no leaks are present then the booter is at fault, and may need to be replaced. If you have hydroboost, you may need to add power steering fluid, if fluid is ok then it could be the power steering pump or the in line valve on the pressure hose.

Lost all power steering fluid and brakes


Hi Salmancasmi,
On vehicles with a hydraulic booster you will find that the power steering pump supplies fluid through bot the steering gear box and the hydraulic booster.
Just a visual inspection of the system should point you to the part that failed, most likely a hose. These can be obtained through your local parts store or dealership.
Locate and replace the failed part, refill the reservoir with power steering fluid. With the front of the truck on jack stands, start the truck and turn the steering wheel from full left to full right several times while pumping the brakes. This will remove the air from the system. Recheck for leaks and fluid level and you'll be on your way.
Hope that helps, good luck.

F350 super duty power stroke diesel loss of power steering when standing still


Power steering pump is weak. If a hydraulic gauge were placed on the pump, you would find it only able to produce about 200-400 psi at an idle. PS requires up to 1500psi. A new pump would produce 1500psi at an idle so replace the pump and you will be fine. By revving up the motor you are able to make the pump put out more psi. The pump is defective internally. Get a good one from the junkyard. Most PS pumps last the life of the vehicle.

2004 f350 power steering problem. when the truck is in gear with your foot on the brake you cant turn the wheels. the power steering pump has been replaced and the fluid changed with no result.


2006 f350 crew 4x4. Replaced p/s pump,booster,put gauges to check pressure? Fluid clean, lifted in air to check steering linkage and turning without load. Still baffled ! I work at a Ford dealer and mechanics said its normal. Thats BS! I replaced the p/s pump so im guessing the screen was new with the pump. I will check for the hell of it. I have a feeling it is suspension under load. The symptom on this truck is not turning when brake applied. Also hard turning when vehicle is on and in park,wont turn.
