Hi my Name is***** will be glad to elp. Check the control valve or sticking and for trash/debris. Check the relief valv cartridge for damaged o rings, debris and other damage causing a bypass of pressure. The other thing to check is the cylinders . Test them to be sure they are not bypassing pressure internally. Let me know
