Power steering going out...

Sometimes my power steering goes out when braking. Started mostly when pulling a load. Lately has begun doing it without a load. Power brakes go out at the same time. (it's a great feeling) Just topped off the brake fluid. Any other suggestions?

SOMETHING screwy starting with my steering and brakes as well....is it making a wurring /humming noise below the dash?

I believe there is a TSB out for this. One is for Power Steering - Fluid Discolored, Noise or High Effort
and the other is
Steering/Brakes - Brake Pedal Kick-Back/Grabbing

check your power steering fluid...service mgr told me to over fill it...i checked and it was below the minimum....seems to effect your breaking as well.... all my issues have now vanished
