Weak hydraulic jack

My passenger rear jack seams to have lost its oomph. If I try lifting the back-end with both jacks as soon as the jacks start taking on weight the passenger side jack gives up and the drivers side jack keeps lifting. Also if I try just running the passenger rear jack it will quit lifting after taking on some weight even though it is not fully extended. I can hear the motor still running but the jack is no longer extending.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

thx!

Well first are your jacks Electric or Hydraulic. If it is Hydraulic it could be the pistons in that cylinder is leaking back. Make sure your fluid level is correct.

Hydraulic and the fluid level is good. The manufacturer is Power Gear and I found a troubleshooting guide that says "Cartridge valve faulty". Now trying to figure out how to test that.
