I had a similar problem shortly before the pump 'lunched' itself

Not sure what model you have but had same problem in ED. Apparently the earlier models had some probs with one of the PS pump hoses 'collapsing' on itself, restricting the fluid through the hose. Simple hydraulics problem, pump keeps pumping but not enough pressure to force the hose open properly.

The fix was to replace hose with later EF/EL hose which had more rigid casing removing the 'collapse' problem.

There is a fix for the falcons that have this problem. It can occur in EB to EF models. I'll have to check at work tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure if you fit the EL high pressure hose, along with one other mod, it will eliminate the problem. I'll post more info tomorrow when I research it.
