Hard to steer and Poor Braking, HELP!!
Hello everyone! I just bought a 2003 Silverado 2500 W/T with the 6.0 and auto trans. The guy i bought it from recently had the power steering pump replaced as it was getting hard to steer. Apparently that didn't fix the issue, so he sold it to me.
I checked for any obvious vacuum leaks and didn't find anything. The issue is that whenever you're driving slowly (or the engine is at idle) it is insanely hard to steer, and the brakes get mushy. The main issue for me is the crazy hard steering. If you give it a little gas the power assist will generally come back. He said it had something to do with the brake booster, that they're somehow linked, i've never seen that, so i'm a bit puzzled.
Anyone heard of this??? I really want to get this resolved ASAP
It should also be mentioned, the power steering fluid is not low. It does have a bit of a whine to it when sitting, revving and turning the wheel, nothing ridiculously loud, but certainly present...
