I am at a loss. I have never dealt with the master cylinder and never heard of a hydroboost until a few hours ago. I am new to diesel so if anyone could tell me why I am loosing powersteering fluid I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, could this be the cause of a slow return on my brake pedal?
Thanks in advance

I had to have my hydrobooster replaced under warranty on my 08 duramax when I had it and it did cause brake pedal issues. Mine would kick back at me before it would go down when I applied brakes. Should be related issue with yur brakes and leaking booster. Mine was leaking as well.
Your power brakes are assisted by the hydroboost. That is why you have brake pedal issues. Run out of power steering fluid and you will lose both assisted steering and brakes. Either rebuild or replace the hydroboost unit or hoses that are leaking.

There is a weep hole on the bottom of the hydroboost unit. When mine was leaking PS fluid it was coming out of there, although it seemed like it was coming from between the master cylinder and hydroboost. Solved problem with a replacement hydroboost unit
Take it to a truck shop and be done. You can continue being innocent of master cylinders, boosters and other such foolish things.
