Will a bad brake booster cause a power steering leak? Guy states brakes are just fine but no power steering

that doesnt tell us much. what your stating also makes no sense. if the booster is bad enough that there is no power steering, you would have 0 power brakes. usually a bad booster does not affect power steering as the leak isnt that bad.

something about that is not adding up. buyer beware

To make sure you understand, the power steering pump pumps fluid to BOTH the power steering unit itself, and to the brake booster. So yes, a "bad" brake booster could be caused by a power steering leak (but more likely a low condition in the pump). It should not be leaking at all.
