Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Check for metal/debris in the return in tank hyd filter that would indicate a pump or component problem occurring. Check the suction hose for leaks as well. If found the system will need to be flushed and cleaned out before running the new pump. Check the pressures and relief valves in the main control valve and for debris in the valves themselves... The symptoms most likely point to a pump issue since all functions are effected. Let me know if we need to dig deeper into this.

Ill check filter. How do i
Check relief valves and for metal in main valve?

You would need to remove the relief cartridges not disturbing the adjustments but unthreading the complete assemblies from the main valve.

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question

You can remove the hose connections in the main valve to look for metal in the ports and then the end caps to check for damaged springs or problems with the spools sticking but unlikely because all functions are effected. the spools would only relate to one function for each one. This is why Im leaning to the pump.
