Steering and Power Brake gone at idle.

I have an 06 F250 6.0L
The pulley on the tensioner locked up, tossed the belt. Drove it maybe 3/4 mile and parked. Replaced the tensioner and belt, now the steering gets hard only when coming to a stop along with losing power brakes. Above idle, running down the road both work fine. Ideas?

Bad power steering pump or low on fluid.
Check level first. Brakes run on a hydroboost system. So if the PS is
having pressure issues the brakes will also. The system can also be tested
with the correct tool. A few other thing to check before throwing a pump at
it would be to see if there is an inline power steering filter element. It it's
plugged you will loose pressure. And were you able to spin the idlers by had
with the belt off? Also check the A/C pulley bearing to see that it spins free
when the clutch if disengaged. If any are stiff then start there first after
checking fluid level.

Might save on the cost of a pump.

Or the belt is slipping if the tensioner is not correct.

Iíll dig into it, look for an inline element, do a system flush, etc. Fluid level, tensioner, belt and pulleys are all good.
