If you notice any drop in your vehicle’s performance, the culprit could be any number of components. Many times, a dip in capabilities is a result of the hydraulic cylinder becoming damaged. Pay attention to the signs that you need to get this part repaired before more damage occurs.
An obvious sign of damage is when the hydraulic cylinder leaks fluid. Although you will want to get repairs done in these cases, it is also prudent to identify why the leaking occurred in the first place. This will allow you to find the overarching problem and ensure it does not happen again.
The mountings play an important role in the function of your car’s cylinder. These mountings should remain fixed into place, but over time, they can become loose. A visual inspection of the mountings will reveal whether they are properly lubricated.
Any number of components within the cylinder could require repair. To find the problem, you will need to disassemble the parts and inspect the following.
- Rod seal
- Piston seal
