skimmer acting up


i have Coralife Super Skimmer 125 and it is acting strange. The pump acts like it looses air and the water level will go up in the skimmer collection tube and almost overflow. It is like a surge, and it will make a different sound when this happens. I have cleaned it out, cleaned the pump, changed the air lines and made sure there are no clogs in the air way. Also when i start to move the pump around it will act this way also. Could this be a sign of the pump going out? I have had the skimmer for almost 2 years and it has never done this. Any ideas?

Thank you
