I just had a shop put a new engine 6.5 Turbo Diesel in my 1996 K2500 3/4 ton 4x4 Chevy Suburban. I got it back and now I lose power to my brakes and steering at the same time. It happens most of the time when I get off the freeway. If I give it a little throttle the power comes back. I have a new engine, injectors, water pump, fuel lift pump, crank sensor, starter, vacuum pump, injection pump, belt, glow plugs and turbo. The front pads and rotors need to be replaced but I can't see how that would cause the issue I am having. Does anyone know what might be the problem? Does the power steering pump or steering box need to be replaced? Did the shop not put it back together right? I checked and the reservoir has fluid. Is there air in the system? The shop just blew me off but I don't want to pay another shop to fix something that another shop is responsible for. Also I keep hearing this strange noise it sounds like a combination of gear whine and air pressure blowing past a rubber seal. This is in addition to the whistle from the turbo the mechanic said it was normal but I have never heard this sound in any other turbo charged vehicle gas or diesel.

You can solve this problem in two ways, first removed front rotors from your vehicle and place the same on brake lathe, there is two fine blades and remove any high spots, secondly is to replace rotors, replacing rotor is expensive route but it is the best one, because it will provide superior braking performance and you will get smoothest braking possible.
