Power steering Fred 10-26-13  
I have a 1994 Pacearrow motorhome with the 454.The power steering and power brakes have gone haywire and stopped working. I had the power booster and brake master cylinder replaced but still have the same problems.what have I missed?

You've missed the power steering pump and the hoses.

Is there fluid in the power steering pump? Is it making noise? Is the drive belt tight or making noise? After replacing the booster and master cylinder, did you bleed the air out of both? Has the steering and brakes stopped working altogether or do they fade away?

Hope that helps!

I had the Power steering pump and the Hydro booster plus one hose replaced the mechanic did bleed the system several times after these items were the system has plenty of fluid.when I first crank up the motor home I have power steering but when the steering wheel is turned it makes the same noise as before and the steering goes away along with the power brakes.

Exactly what I needed to know; Thank you!

It sounds like the valving is shot in the steering box. This valving is located at the top of the steering box and is where you see the fluid lines attaching to the steering box.

This is rebuildable, however you may find this repair quicker and cheaper to do if you just replace the steering box with a re-manufactured unit.

Hope that helps!
