 JD 3520 eHydro 4x4 hydraulis problems

I am having problems with the hydraulics on my 3520. The 300CX loader operates very jumpy and makes a lot of hissing sounds when raising and lowering. In addition, the 3 point lift will jump when an attachment is completely raised up. It will start to slowly lower a couple inches then suddenly you can hear hydraulic fluid rush to it and it will bump back up. It usually makes a hissing sound when this happens. Can anyone suggest anything to check? All filters and hydrulic fluid was changed recently with JD parts and lo vis oil.

Fluid low or sucking air somewhere?

The fluid level is in the top 2/3 of dipstick when cold and all attachments lowered. Could it be an inline filter anywhere in system that is clogged?

Did this problem start happening right after the fluid was changed? Sometimes if you get air in the system it just has to work it's way out through use.

 JD 3520 eHydro 4x4 hydraulis problems

The problem was the same before I changed the oil and filter. I can't help but think the hydraulic pump is going out. At times the tractor performs well with lots of power. It gradually worsens as the machine heats up under load. I used to have a JD 4200 with FEL and it did the same darn thing. That was pretty much the only reason I sold it and got the 3520.

I'm no expert in this regard, but if it were my tractor I'd start out this way. First, relieve all pressure in the hydraulic system and then disconnect all four hoses going to the loader at the quick disconnects. Then start the tractor and operate the 3ph a few times. Does it still jump around? If no, then the problem is somewhere in the loader circuit.

There is only two things that I've seen cause symptoms like that were a) cavitation caused by air trapped in the system, or b) a problem with the relief valve.

The first one, cavitation, is IMHO most likely and luckily the easiest to cure.

The relief valve is easy to diagnose, just temporarily install a pressure gauge in the system, call for pressure and watch the gauge, but usually hard (and spendy) to replace.

Best of luck.

I'm leaning torwad a bad pump too since the problem gets worse when the oil gets hotter--the pump is expanding on an already marginal pump allowing fluid to slip past the pump gears.

To test this theory, the next time it is acting up, get the oil really warm then run cold water from a hose over the pump and the oil cooler for about 10 minutes and see if it gets better.

Yup this one got away from me before I spellchecked it---actually Kenny typed it Smile

Those two sentences lead me away from the bad pump idea.

First off, bad pumps usually perform worse under pressure, pardon the pun, than not, cold oil is thicker, creating better pressure, as the oil warms it thins, making the pump work easier.

Secondly, if the pump was going out, there would be LOTS of debris in the oil when it was changed. The OP makes no comment about the oil being anything but changed. I would think if it was really bad he would have said so.

Either way, a $20 gauge on a QD fitting will tell volumes about the problem.

Best of luck.

Murf maybe I read the the whole thread wrong--- but it sounds like because he had the problem, to remedy it he changed the oil to no avail.
