    is the air releif valve bad. Drained out all fluid, put new in and ran it a little while, filled it back up. Fine for a while then oil starts shooting out of the air relief check valve. Something wrong with oil?, Check valve or too much air mixed in with oil. Will letting it sit overnight settle the air out. The spring in the valve feels really week to me! Thanks Guys!

    More than likely you just overfilled it when you changed the fluid. The fluid level should be 1" to 1 1/2" below the fill hole with the lift ram fully collapsed. I like to use a wire tie as a "dip stick" to check the level.
