New 7.3 owner with a few????

1. No power steering and there's power steering fluid all over the drivers side of the engine. Bad pump??

2. After truck starts theres weird groaning noise and break pedal pulsates with ABS light on. Not sure if groaning is from power steering or breaks.

Thats it for now, thanks in advance!

its probly comming from your powersteering pump or your brake booster. i think the powersteering put gets pressure from from the brake booster or they are tied togather somehow.

The power steering pump supplies pressure for the steering and brakes. Chances are one of the lines has blown or rusted through. You may need to take the drivers side inter cooler pipe of to get at it. Remember to refill the ps pump
with ATF.

If its foaming it is more than likely a bad pump. Its just frothing. Since the power brake controller is powered by the PS pump, it would make sense that your brakes are pulsating. How full idd you get your PS reservoir because the bubbles ould also be an indication that its just bleading air through the lines. Have a friend get in the truck, pump the brakes and turn the front wheels while you are bleeding a the PS line, then keep filling the PS reservoir...that way you can bleed the system of air.

update- breaks seem to work fine. powersteering is still out and when you turn the wheel there is a loud whining groaning noise. The fluid level is fine but still foams up when u turn the wheel. If the ps pump is bad the breaks wouldn't work, right??

You are using ATF for fluid in your pump?
