    Sounds more like a electrical prob,not a fluid problem.Maybe a bad ground? check all your connections

    There is a filter at the bottom of the pump that should be cleaned. I would think that the shop would have cleaned it when they flushed the fluid (especially for $300), but you never know. I have had similar problems with mine and it ended up being the filter.

    It sounds like a stuck soleniod to me. Probably the S2. Click on the fisher link up top. Go to the tech section and click on guides. Then mechanics. It will give you a choice of blade. You should probably click on straight blade then SEHP for power options. You can download there mechanics manual. It is really acurate and has a great trouble shooting guide in it. Just be sure to do it all step by step so you can eliminate all possibiltys. Good Luck :salute:
