8 years? I don't think you have a problem, other than thinking maybe

I just wanted to indicate that it's probably the pump making the noise.
There may be a restriction in a line or filter where some foreign
is slowing return of fluid to the pump, or internally in the pump.
a fluid change and filter cleaning can help this.
