steering and brake Issue

My power steering is whining and doesnt work when the truck is ideling but does when your driving it. And the brake pedal pulsates when you hit the pedal. Is it in my power steering pump or the hydro boost set-up. The fluid level in the power steering is full.

Mine did that, you need to replace the pump. Higher RPMs pumps more juice hence steering and brake work...

I'd pop for a "new" unit, not re-manufactured. I did a re-man and it DOA. I had to do the job 2x. Also pop for the unit with the reservoir attached. Sometimes the heat will distort the reservoir and it will not fit (seal) with the new pump.

You will need a pulley remover to get the power steering pulley off.
You can rent from Auto-zone with a credit card deposit.

I have the puller to remove pulley. I got it up and going and i works perfect. I figured that was what it was. I also done a foil delete on the in inlet piping tube while i had it out. Thanks again for all the help.
