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.

2004 Chevy tahoe power steering an power brakes went out at the same time what should I check first

Sounds like you have hydroboost, an alternative to vacuum booster for brakes. Hydraulic pressure from steering is used as driver assist for the brakes.

You can read about it on the link. Hope it helps.

Bleeding hydroboost brakes

Always start back at the beginning. Remove the master cylinder and bleed it before fitting. Then you can bleed the hub furtherest away from the master cylinder, working your way towards the closest. Also make sure all the pistons/wheel cylinders are pushed all the way home first.

Power steering hard and brakes are very weak

It would appear that your vehicle has a Hydroboost system (many Chevys do), which uses hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump to also boost the brakes. Check your power steer fluid level. If it is OK, then either you have air in the system, or the pump is failing. Also check all the hoses and pipes between the pump and brake master cylinder for leakage.

This sounds like the hydroboost unit is leaking.behind the master cylinderThe braking system on this using the power steering pump to provide power assisted brakes instead of a brake booster. The hydroboost unit most likely needs replaced.

I have a 2004 chevy astro van with less then 21,000.00 miles. It is currently at the local chevy dealer every time you apply the breaks the power steering locks

Sounds to me like the hydroboost system has a stuck biass valve in the hydrobooster. The sytem works both the brakes and the steering.

Power steering and power brakes failed

Check to see if the power steering reservoir is full and the belt is intact.I'm assuming that you have a hydroboost unit where the p/s works the brake booster. If those are ok you could have a bad p/s pump
