What Are Common Problems Associated with Hydraulic Systems?
A hydraulic system usually includes a sump, motor, pump, control valves, actuators, and of course, hydraulic fluid. Hydraulic systems are commonly used for construction vehicles, large-scale agricultural equipment, waste and recycling vehicles and other heavy duty work and emergency vehicles.
Hydraulic equipment usually has a few common problems if the hydraulic components are not properly maintained.
If there is an abnormal noise coming from your hydraulic motor, this can be a sign of an issue. Noise is usually caused by hydraulic fluid air contamination. As the air compresses or decompresses, it will make a loud banging noise in the hydraulic system.
A decrease in machine production is another problem that people see in hydraulic machines. This is usually a sign the machine has a leak in a hose or in the internal pump, control valves, or actuators, indicating that repair may be needed.
Degradation of hydraulic fluid
Hydraulic fluid can degrade when it reaches high temperatures of usually more than 180°F (82°C). High temperatures can not only degrade hydraulic fluid, but also damage seals within the overall hydraulic system which decreases hydraulic fluid power.

What is the process for repairing a hydraulic pump?
The process for repairing a hydraulic pump depends on your issue. Before any work begins, an experienced technician should determine if repair is necessary, rather than a rebuild or a remanufacturing process. After you’ve established that your hydraulic pump needs repairing, an experienced technician will identify the best repair process for that particular pump.
First, the technician will clean the surface of the pump to ensure there are no contaminants getting into the fluid or other pump parts. Second, the technician will dismount the pump and visually inspect the entire piece of hydraulic equipment. From there, the technician will determine whether to repair or replace the pump with new OEM parts, from vendors like Caterpillar or Komatsu.
