Could be metal shavings in the fluid or any other contaminates in the tank! When was the last time you changed your fluid?!

These pumps have internal check ball/springs they r in where the candle for the dump goes the push in side ways towards the pressure most likey those r bad i don't know if reds sells the check balls and more but if i remeber u can take the spring ball out of a normal 3/8 male to male check valve and use it good luck make sure when u reinstall the candle of the dump you don't catch the spring on one of the holes in the dump and stretch it out its a little tricky at times but fair easy once u get the hang of it
