Default Hitec 945 doing some weird stuff...

I bought a bunch of used r/c stuff a while ago, and with it was a Hitec 945MG servo, I'm not sure how old it is or how bad it was abused.

But anyways...when you turn it one way it will sometimes turn smoothly, but then if you go the other way it will be very chirpy and will act like it is glitching majorly. It will move a bit then twitch back the other way then move a bit more but eventually it will make it to the end. But it still has a lot of torque. When centering it also does the same thing. I have tried it with 2 different cars that have different radio's, ESC's, and motors, and have found the same results. I tried taking it apart and cleaning the "pot" or whatever it's called but it did nothing, in fact it even seemed to make it worse.

Anyone have any ideas as to why its doing this? I have also heard that Hitec has a warranty on all of their servos, is this true?
