Hi there cant get the trim and tilt fixed as yet
Expert:  Tan replied 2 months ago.

Did you try the tests I posted?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Hi yes i have tried it
Expert:  Tan replied 2 months ago.

That leaves a failing seal or the pump has a bad valve. One more thing to check remove the manual release valve and inspect the seal on the end of the valve. If damaged the system will not pressurize.
