I was the one who posted what make a frond end vibrate severely on a 1989 Ford F 150 the other day you replace all tires steering box tie rods brakes and it still is real bad what else can it be?
wheel balance is probably needed also check the u-joints vibrations can travel and give false sense of where they are coming from could also be a bent wheel
Is the electronic steering in a 2007 Saturn Ion directly related to the brakes in any way. Which makes you think that possibly you have warped rotors?
Two things: 1. Your power steering pump is quite - this will affect your steering (of course) but will effect the brakes too 2. You lost your main belt that operates all the aulterator, steering, cooling system and brakes (the serpantine belt) - if the belt is still on and tight - its number one (I had both happen1)
What if the power steering and brakes are locked up on your astro van after falling in a ditch what do you need to do?
Astro's power steering and power brakes run off the same hydraulic system. The hydraulic pump was probably damaged when you "fell" into the ditch. A hard turn can cause damage. Both systems go out at the same time. Steering and braking are not impossible without the hydraulics, but extremely difficult. Safest bet would be a tow to the mechanic who will probably replace the pump. $400 - $500.
In 2004 Toyota Camry if I have not used hand brakes do I need to replace front and rear wheels brakes or just front wheel brakes?
After a power steering flush can other things happen to require further mechanical work such as replacement of power steering pump hose rack and pinion?
ALL RUBBER COMPONENTS (HOSES/BELTS) SHOULD BE REPLACE RIGHT ABOUT EVERY TWO(2) years.now your rack and pinion should only be replace if is going bad or if is already bad. For example once the inner bushings on your tie rods brakes or crack, the entire unit needs to be replaced. if the rack is leaking it needs to be replace Even if there is NO noticeable changes in your steering of the vehicle. This is done…
96 gmc safari van the power steering and the brakes are out this morning fluids are good and so are the belts any idea what the problem might be?
Are the brakes out or is the power brake system not working properly. I believe those vehicles have the hydro boost power brake system. If so, the power steering pump is what applies the power brakes, no vacuum is needed. If something is wrong with the power steering pump (empty, no belt, malfunctioning) it will affect the power brakes as well.
If you have a hydroboost brake system (on 3/4 ton diesel and some 3/4 ton 454 trucks) you will not have power brakes if you loose the power steering pump. However, if you have any motor besides the 6.5 diesel or 7.4l, you have vaccume assisted power brakes. You can tell which you have by looking at the firewall where the master cylinder is, if you have a large round pancake looking thing attached to…
