Default RE: How to tell a servo is dying?

ORIGINAL: Seanhasabuggy It seems the servo that controls the steering is weakening. Like it doesnt turn the wheels completely. I get maybe a 1/2 inch of turn on the wheels. Any thoughts?
1. Which transmitter, does it have end point adjustment = EPA?A small roller on some TX which could have been accidentally turned down.
2. Disconnect servo horn, does servo move normally then (never turn wheels whislt car/truck is stationary - either moving or lift off the ground.
(try turning the wheels of a full size car whilst stationary, an unacceptable load is placed on the system and leads to early burnout of the servo)
3. What condition is the servo saver in? - needs service?
