4020 steering to the right is lazy , steering to the left is good , hydraulic system holds 2000 lbs. good any idea of problem and how to fix. gear shift is under steering wheel pretty sure a 69 model.

Have you had this tractor for some time or is it a recent acquisition? The JD 4020 1969 serial numbers go from 201100-222159. Lazy power steering to one side has two commom possibilities, internal leakage in the control valve, Or, if the front end had been worked on, the tie-rods were not set to center the steering wheel when setting the toe-in. If that is the case, and the steering wheel is properly centered when driving straight or has fewer turns turning right than when turning left, the steering wheel was re-centered by removing it and resetting it on the steering shaft spline, in which case it is rarely perfectly centered. If that is the case, the control valve may not open much and restricts oil flow when turning right.
It is possible the steering cylinder piston seal leaks in one direction more than the other, or that the front wheel toe-in is wrong.

Peugeot 307 sw hdi 2005 power steering failure

first thing , mount the pump properly
if it is bely driven then the belt will not be driving properly to give power steering
if electrical driven then the earth for the pump will not be effective resulting in no power steering assistance
next take it to an accredited power steering shop for a proper diagnosis.

Power steering max

Hi Sherman

You have to do this test to find out why the steering is heavy.
after you check the steering fluid level and top it up if needed.
start the engine let it IDLE try to turn steering and feel how hard or soft is.
Now rev the engine up to 2500 rpm and keep holding the rev. test the steering while you still holdind the rev.
if you feel no difference, the problem is the steering rack it self.
if the steering get softer while you rev up, the problem is the power steering pump.
Good Luck

My mistubishi mirage 1998 is hard to turn. what could be the possible problems

If you have power steering, check for the following first:
  • Check for an adequate level of power steering fluid.
  • The power steering pump is bad, or the belt is broken.
  • The steering cylinder has bad piston seals.

In any design version, bad alignment, worn or under-lubricated front-end parts can increase steering force. These problems are more noticeable with manually-powered steering. I have not heard of any hard steering caused by a problem with the steering column, but I suppose it is possible.

Can low steering fluid cause mechanical problems

Problems associated with low power steering fluid…

Hard Vehicle Steering
A low power steering fluid level can often times cause a vehicle's steering to become hard and labored. Adequate amounts of power steering fluid are necessary to enable a vehicle's power steering system to function and operate at optimum levels. A lack of power steering fluid in a vehicle's power steering system reduces the amount of hydraulic fluid pressure necessary to efficiently operating the various parts of the entire power steering system. Power steering fluid supplies the fluid force needed to operate the power steering gears and to enable power steering gearbox operation. Low power steering fluid levels reduce this hydraulic pressure, which commonly results in hard vehicle steering.

Pump Noise
It is very common for a low power steering fluid level to cause significant power steering pump noise. An adequate amount of power steering fluid is required to ensure the proper function and longevity of a power steering pump unit, which is a belt-driven pump responsible for housing and circulating power steering pump fluid. A low level of power steering fluid results in increased power steering pump friction, heat, and wear, all of which can significantly reduce the operational life of the power steering pump while at the same time cause excessive power steering pump noise.

Fluid Boiling
Many times a low power steering fluid level can result in excessive heating of power steering fluid, a condition that can seriously degrade the fluid and cause it to boil. A low power steering fluid level results in less available fluid to both lubricate and cool a power steering pump unit. A lack of power steering pump lubrication and cooling leads to excessive heat being generated within the power steering pump unit itself, a condition that translates into the available level of power steering fluid becoming super-heated and degraded. When this happens it is common for the power steering fluid to boil and lose all of its lubricating and heat-reducing capabilities.

Gearbox Wear
The power steering gearbox is a set of gears within a vehicle's power steering system designed to facilitate movement of a vehicle's front wheels. The power steering gearbox is connected to the power steering pump by hydraulic fluid lines that deliver a constant supply of power steering fluid to the power steering gearbox. A low power steering fluid level, especially a chronic and severe low power steering fluid level, can lead to increased friction and wear within the power steering gearbox assembly, a condition that can significantly shorten the operational life of the power steering gearbox and negatively affect its operation

I have a fiat idea. It recently had new tyres and the wheels were aligned symmetrically. However, this left the self-centring of the electric steering slightly left of centre. I don't think the wheel...

I am not familiar with this particular car, but every car has a mechanical way of adjusting the steering linkage such that the steering wheel will be centered, even if this means removing the steering wheel and replacing it in the correct spot. A lot of VW's are done this way. What has happened with your car is simply laziness on the part of the technician. He could have insured that your steering wheel was straight through counter adjustments in the steering linkage and properly test driving the car. I do wheel alignments for a living and would never let a car go like this. Take it back, demand it be fixed properly, ask for a print-out of the alignment, if they can't provide a print-out, ask for your money back and take the car somewhere that can.

Steering noise and vibration

Noises are kind of difficult to diagnos if you don't hear them firsthand. That said, the thing I would be looking at is the strut bearing. It is circular like a lazy susan and what happens on cars over 75,000 miles is dirt can accumulate in the bearings and it can cause a grinding or popping because it resists turning and when it does the spring is suddenly turned and that sets up the noise.

If that is the problem I would recommend replaceing both sides and then you will need to get the alignment done. Let me know if I can be anymore help
