no brakes or steering

i have a 2000 f350 crewcab longbed and i i went to walmart today and the truck drove fine i got out of walmart started the truck up went to put it in drive and it drove right threw the brakes at idle. i got out of the truck and there was about a quart or two laying under the drivers side. checked all the fluids engine, trans, and brakes were all fine. powersteering was low. so i started the truck back up it kept leaking and i went to try and steer and had no power steering. i searched on here and a couple of other people have had the same problem but i don't understand what would effect the brakes? i am thinking it is either the power steering pump or one of the lines.

The powersteering pump supplies pressure for the brake booster. So if your leaking powersteering fluid and your brakes are not working. I would be checking the line from the brake booster to the power steering pump.

I don't know I never dealt with it. I have replaced the powersteering pump on my truck. That took me about 2 hours.

I just went through the same issue with no brakes as BC is correct the ps pump supplies the pressure for the brakes called hydroboost as a diesel doesn't create vacuum for the master cylinder

Well you have to find the leak first....Put some more power steering fluid in their and try to see where its leaking. It might just be a matter of the hose going to the P.S. fluid reservoir needing to be pushed on. The hose is easy to get to also, just look right near where you pour the p.s. fluid.
