Alright heres the problem, i was having a little fun doing a pretty big burnout.
i was holding the brake and doing the burnout at the sametime
well as i pulled back in the driveway i noticed steering was hard and when i went to hit the brakes they worked but not good, pedal went to the floor
but when i rev the truck alittle bit the will work then when the motor idles it has not Power Steering or Brakes

Any Suggestions? Ive looked to loose hoses and found nothing
Please Help!

Well the brakes might have got a little warm so that could explain the lack of brakes. Steering I don't know. Did you spit the fan belt maybe?

See how it is after the trucks sits for a little bit. You might have cavitated the pump which puts air in the system. Should not happy, but its possible. If that is the case. It should be much better the next time you start it up. It may take a few times to get all the air out. Other than that, I would say the pump went.

they look like a b!tch to install but might be better once you get some stuff out of the way. Mines getting weak but with how it looks its going to die before i try it.
