Power steering and Brake problem

I've recently had a issue with my power steering and brakes messing up it feels like my power steering is going out but when you push the brake pedal down it makes the same noise as when turning. I have hydrobooster could the power steering pump be causing this issue. I need a little input?

check your power steering fluid level, I recently had this problem when my steering gearbox decided it wanted to crack and dump all the fluid. A new gearbox and fluid solved this problem

Would also be a good time to look into doing the power steering fld flush. Very easy and you might be suprised how cooked the fld is.

My 2004 has a mind of its own once and a while , steering on its own from side to side.
After hard acceleration it goes stupid then when things tame down it's fine - sometimes
during early driving while the truck is coming up to temp.
I put a magnefine filter in the line from the booster to the tank - not sure if that was
a good idea ?
I'm going to change my fluid and move the filter to the return line at the cooler.
Any thoughts would be appreciated

Possibly an intermittent problem in your power steering pump? Could possibly be losing pressure, then gaining it back to give you that side to side steering feeling. The pump could also be having a hard time regulating the output pressure when you accelerate hard causing it to "go stupid".

Pump is going (or working to hard) when it screams like crazy so you can narrow it down.. And just for a warning, im sure you already know butttt we use atf fluid not power steering fluid.
