96 powerstroke brake problems

Last night i was turning my truck around and lost all power assist on my brakes. I dont know if its the brake booster or the vacum pump. I have no power assist at all now and it just stopped workin all of a sudden. I was hoping you could help me diagnose it.

Try changing your vent from defrost to vents if it doesn't switch it would be the vacuum pump. Check the hoes off the vacuum pump for cracks in the hoses. I had the same problem and found it was the vacuum pump. Good luck and post your findings.
