I am working on our company's truck2002 chevy silverado 3/4ton HD crew cab 6.0litre gas auto 4 wheel disc brakes
My problem is with the brakes and power steering.
the rear brakes will heat up especially in heavy traffic or pulling a trailer the brake pedal it seems like the brakes are slightly appling themsevles.. Also the power steering gets stiff.
I installed a new power steering pump I did the procedure that the chilton's manual recommends to bleed the pump. The old pump had a terribble howl to it. The power steering started to work fine until I hit the brakes then it became hard to steer again and brakes still heat up pads are good all the way around.
this model has the hydraulic accumulator /master cylider not the vaccuum boost so the steering and brakes are linked together? I think the accumulator/mastercylider is bad. Or maybe the ECHU. Her is the picture of the master cylinder/hydro accumulator
