Blew a hydraulic line to the brake booster

Started my truck the other day and had a strong transmission fluid smell so I got out to check and power steering fluid was just pooring out under the truck. I found that the pressure line from the power steering pump to the brake booster was leaking bad. I tightened the connection and got it down to a trickle but couldn't get it to stop. There is a short piece of hard line that goes from the booster to rubber line that goes on to the power steering pump. I assumed that the hard line had a cracked flare fitting and ordered a new line for $30. After I got the part and removed the old one I found that there is an O-ring between the booster and the hard line. So if anyone has this problem in the future just remember it's only a $2 O-ring not a flare fitting and definately not worth a trip to the dealer.

Take it back to the dealer for warranty repair is what I would do!

Had exactly the same problem in my 99, but the opposite end of the line on Friday. Another thing to remember is that when that line goes, you also lose your power brakes. So if it is leaking, get it fixed right away.

I forgot to tell you that it isn't a 6.0 but a 96 7.3. Anything will help. I don't have alot to spend on it but I have to get it fixed quick.

Yes, they are interconnected, check the line going from the power steering pump to the brake canister behind the master brake cylinder, you will probably have a leak in it, mine was right at the fitting to the power steering pump. I replaced the line with a factory one for about 50 bucks Canadian. Once the line is replaced it should all go back to normal. Hope that helps you out.

Unfortanitly, the 96 uses a vacuum pump, not a hydro boost. Had the power steering fixed. Still no brakes. Mechanic said vacuum pump is bad. Anyone ever change one of these? Is it hard?

vacuum pump is very easy to change,only two or three bolts iirc.you'll need a puller/installer to take the pulley off the old pump and put it on the new one,thats the hardest part
