No power steering or brakes

So yesterday i was heading to work and all of a sudden i had no power steering and my brakes went out to. It is all you can do to push the brake pedal in an inch. This problem happened all of a sudden there was no weird noises it went from driving great to this. My brake and power steering fluid levels are all good to. My truck has a 12 valve swap so i wasn't really sure if i should post this here or in the 2nd gen 24v section so if it's in the wrong section mods please move it. Thanks!

do you have a hydroboost setup or did you swap in a vacuum setup

Mine has done the same thing twice and both times it has been the power steering pump. Chances that is the same thing that is happening to you. I would replace the pump first then look at the hydroboost. jmo

Cool, might be a dumb question but why would the brakes go out if the power steering pump went up?

I just remembered the guy i bought the truck from just put a power steering pump on so hopefully it isn't that.

Your breaks would go with your powersteering on a hydroboost setup because your power brakes work off of your powersteering, unlike a gas job that works off of vacum from the engine, some of the 12v have a vacum setup i believe from 96 on back through the older ones.

your power steering pump, not only pressurizes your steering to amke it easy to turn, but it also pressurizes your brakes to make it easy to push your brakes.

ill take another vote for pump failure. no pump + hydroboost = no power brakes or steering (fun!)

Pull the pump off and check the coupler between the vac pump and PS pump, it is also another common failure point in this situation

Before you buy a new pump try this: powersteering

It worked for a friend of mine and others on the forums. He did not enlarge the orifice just cleaned the screen and striched the spring.
