    Hey guys, Was coming back from the hunting land today and went to make a turn and lost power steering in the middle of a turn... almost hit someone. So once I got home I started messing with the truck and figured the following out: 1. Power steering works fine in reverse for the most part 2...

    Help, I am having a real problem with my 2003 Excursion 6.0. Specifically, my brakes and my steering have been deteriorating over the course of the last few months. A few weeks ago it got to the point where the steering will only work if I have the RPM’s above 2200 and the brakes are really...
  3. 6.4L Problems Forum
    First time posting. After searching around for a few days it seems the problem with my truck may not be the power steering pump as I had initially suspected. My truck has always felt like there is no power steering, sometimes in mid-turn, the wheel feels like it locks up (like turning left in...
  4. Suspension & Steering
    So I had a small oil leak coming down the back of the engine (nothing in the valley) and decided to finally take it into a reputable shop in E. County San Diego to take a look. Since the tranny had 175K mi on it I decided to have them do a tranny service, too (it just began to shift hard...

    Just put new hawk pads and rotors on my 2003 F250 initially the brakes worked fine but now the pedal starts out firm and fades then firms up. Also seems to loose power steering very intermittently while braking. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance Mike

    Stupid thing broke - the aluminum bracket that holds the power steering pump to the engine block. The pump itself seems fine, it's just the bracket. :( I can't find the damned thing *ANYWHERE*. It's part F6TZ-19E708-AA, but all the online results for it turn up at the same "clearing house"...

    I have been having a time figuring this one out. My belt keeps fraying and coming apart; about 2 or 3 ribs on the front side of the belt. Any Ideas? Some background on what I have done so far: I bough the truck about 2 months ago and had noticed that the belt had some of the ribs ripped off...

    Noticed a very loud whine in my steering. Also difficult to turn when not moving, the brake pedal is somewhat soft and makes the whine louder when depressed. Just replaced PS Pump no change what so ever. HydroBoost system problem??

    I just bought a 2006, 6.0 from a guy and the power steering is leaking. He says that he replaced the pump a year or two back but the store he bought if from (Napa Autoparts/or Advanced auto parts, can't remember which one) is known for pumps that leak, which he found out after he installed it...

    Hello all!! My P/S pump is getting weak and i want change it and all the lines as they are getting worn. I know there are 3 or 4 at least that tie the pump to box, to hydroboost and cooler. The 2 lines from the cooler to where they tie in to hardline by front left tire aren't a problem but...
  13. Suspension & Steering
    Hello to everyone.. I have a F250 Super Duty, just had some work done on it, part of that work was replacing a leaking power steering hose. Now every now and then when turning at low speeds normally in parking lots and mostly right turns the steering either binds ups or it is like I loose power...

    I have a 99 PSD and I'm going to put a hydraulic dump bed on it. I also want to install a large hydraulic winch, (18k). The dump bed from P&J comes with it's own crappy little electric motor driven hyd. pump, but with the load I'll be carrying I would likely burn out that pump pretty quickly...
