99 F350 Lost PS and Brakes
Hey fellas, I am hoping someone can help me out here as I am stuck home and unable to work.
I own a 99 Ford F350 PSD 4x4, Crew Cab, Extended Bed.
When I bought the truck, about a month ago, I have noticed since the purchase, that my power steering would not work when the brakes were applied or when I was sitting still. Granted hoping this was normal as the truck is lifted and has oversize tires, I thought it was something I'd have to get used to.
Coming back from Ontario, Ca to Turlock, Ca (a 6 hour drive, through highways and mountains) everything went smooth and OK. However, the next day, I drove the truck and immediately noticed that my brake pedal went to the floor with little stopping power behind it, and I also had no power steering.
I bled the power steering and got a solid stream of fluid, without any bubbles. Now I have ZERO brakes. All lost.
Is it my hydro boost? Master Cylinder or Power Steering Pump?
I am leaning towards my power steering pump.
Any help and input is extremely appreciated.
