No Power Steering

I have a 2001 International with 7.3 power stroke ( T444E ) and just a couple of days ago lost my power steering, checked the fluid level and its full and looks good no bubbles or milky, This my first diesel powered truck that I've owned so I'm at a loss of what to do to fix this problem or even where the power steering pump is or how it functions can any one give me some help?

Thanks

Did you lose them suddenly?

I would try flushing the fluid if it was slow.

The Power steering pump is combined with the hydroboost unit. I would inspect both of them for blockages. Find out where the fluid is stopped and then replace the blockage.

That sounds like a good place to start then.
