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.

Power steering and brakes hard


Look and if you have the hydroboost system on your vehicle..If so the power steering pump control the brake assit and the power steering..Then if you have that system,, check the power steering fluid level ..If its not low then you might have a bad powersteering pump..The hydroboost is located right behind the master cylinder..It has hoses coming off of it and circles back around to the pump..

My chevrolet astro lost power steering and the brakes are hard


Your van sounds like it has hydro-boost.It uses the power steering for brake boost instead of engine vacumme.More than likely you have had a power steering pump failure.

My brakes feel hard and the abs does not work i dont think also no power steering looked at new ones at auto zone they asked me if it had vacuum boost or something makes me almost think the vacuum is bad...


It likely has hydroboost brakes. A bad power steering pump or a power steering pump that is low on fluid would cause all your problems. Is this gas or diesel?

I have a 1995 chevy astro van and the breaks and steering have lost power. The fluid's are full, and I can not detect any broken lines. What could it be?


Your van don't have the regular air (vacum) power brake booster, your has a hydraboost brake booster, which is power by your power steering pump, if power steering pump goes bad you will not have power steering or brakes, brake peddle will feel very hard and will take alot of pressure on the brake peddle to stop your van, more the likely your power steering pump is bad.

What would cause the power steering and the power brakes to fail on a chevy avalanch


Check power steering fluid level.
Power steering pump provides hydraulic assistance to you brakes.
if the level is low, add fluid and check if there is a leak somewhere.
If the level is OK, suspect a bad power steering pump.
Hope it will help

Lost power steering and brakes on 96 Astro


Hello altgraph1: My name is Roger and I can help. The power steering and the brakes are directly connected. If the power steering pump fails you will also loose the brake assist. This vehicle does not have a vacuum booster you have a hydro-boost brake system. This unit uses the power steering pressure to assist the stopping of the vehicle. You will need special tools to determine if the power steering pump failed or if the hydro-boost system failed. Most likely the power steering pump failed. How ever to be sure it should be tested first. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Power breaks and stearing not working


This is a hydro boost brake system that runs of your power steering so if the power steering fluid is low then you will have no brakes and no steering or if the ps. pump stops pumping then the same thing will happen check for proper fluid level check for broken ps belt if they are find then suspect a bad ps. pump:]

Power steering & power brakes


Sounds to me like your power steering pump has gone bad. Being a vehicle with a hydro-boost brake system that would explain the power brake failure. Hydro-boost brake systems utilize pressurized power steering fluid to provide brake assist. In most lighter GVWR vehicles this function is performed by engine vacuum. There is a recall on certain Silverados and Sierras that addresses a faulty check ball in the booster, but your vehicle is affected by a steering issue as well. This would indicate to me that it is the pump. You can however check online to verify if your vehicle is affected by the recall. Hope this helps.
