Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Check the lines between the tank and pump for restrictions or leaks. Also you can install a clear hose or sight glass to look for air bubbles in the system. Try running a separate hose into the tank fill to see if the problem still exists. Let me know what model and serial number detroit you have and I can likely help with some more detailed troubleshooting.
