Hi the first thing to inspect is the belt that drives the pump it may be slipping or dry and cracked it will need to be replaced.The fluid being full is a good sign there aren't any leaks but it may indicate the pump is worn causing this failure in the first few minutes of start-up,thanks for your time.
