Brake booster leaking...

I have alot of power steering fluid comming from my brake booster. My question is, can I rebuild it myself, or would it be better to buy a new one and install it. It leaks really bad when I am towing, don't quite understand, but it needs to be fixed.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

I am confused as to why your brake booster has power steering fluid in it?:shrug: Could you possible be referring to your vacuum pump located down on the motor?

Because my brake booster is called a Hydrobooster, it is hydraulic not vaccum, therfore it uses the powersteering pump, and has powersteering fluid running through it to boost brake pressure.

The problem is, its not a vaccum pump, it is leaking from the power booster behind the master cylinder, where the lines from the power steering pump go into it. I am just wondering if it could be an O ring or something torn that will be easy to fix, instead of spending $200 on a new booster.

Thanks

Sorry to say I can't help you. I just did some studying up on the system and it looks like there is not a lot of those out there. I could not find any info online about how to troubleshoot or repair the system. Hope you can find some info and get it taken care of.

I appreciate all the feedback, I am also looking into it, and so far have come up with nothing except replacing it...
