Question about Cars & Trucks
Can someone tell me if the hydro boost could affect the steering
Posted by Anonymous on
Depends on the car and the problem.
The hydro-boost gets pressure from the power steering pump on some models, so the pump could affect the hydro-boost but usually not the other way around. You could disconnect the hydro-boost lines and the power steering should still work.

How does the hydro boost fell "funny" - does the brake pedal go to the floor? Do the brakes lock up? engage immediatly? Does the brake light stay on, come on while brakes are applied? Have a diagnostics test done on it at a local auto parts store (usually a free service; stores may vary) and see if any codes show up. If so, the person submitting the test can tell you what the code(s) mean, and what to do to fix the problem.
