After sharp U-turn lost all power brakes and steering in my 6.5 Sub. Fluid all topped off. Presumably I need a new power steering pump. Any advice?

G.M. Have a habit of breaking the pump shaft internaly. So pump pully turns looks good but no pump pressure. So no steering or brakes on your truck.

Not cloged but likely metal in system from pump failure. When new pump is on remove return line capture fluid in pan keep adding fluid till it comes out clean.

Thanks everyone, that was it. Also, since the pump shaft is actually snapped, a pully-puller is not necessary.
Thanks Again!
