    Sounds like you may have a moisture problem.... Is it cold enough for water to freeze in your reservoir? Try taking the motor off, then remove some of the fluid and see if there is ice in the bottom. When it gets cold enough ice will collect on the sump screen and plug it up. Sometimes it looks like wax and other times it can be a slimy film but either way it will plug up the pickup screen. If you do have ice then empty the reservoir and fill it again. Also blow out the sump screen with compressed air. If there is a lot of ice you might consider purging your rams too.
