This could be Low Fluids in trans, Or Fluid from the slave cylynder has air in it or low in the resavoir. It seems the clutch is not engaging due to lack of pressure from the slave cylynder not pushing the pressure plate hard enough and in return causing the tranny to make a grunting sound

I have had problems with truck starting

When it wont crank, tap on the starter with a hammer, wrench ect. if it starts then, most likely need the starter replaced. If it grunts, its getting power. Make sure the battery is good. to check, take a voltage reading should be 12.7 volts on a fully charged battery, take a reading when starting, should not go below 10volts.

Seems like grunt or grind in steering colume

What color is the power steering fluid?
If it is dark and/or grayish you may have a power steering pump which has ground itself to death.
While grinding has contaminated the complete system.
The cure in most Ford products with this PS pump is a complete power steering pump replacement and steering rack change with a good hose/line flushing before reconnecting.
