SOURCE: replaced pool pump motor but breaker keeps tripping

Breakers are mechanical parts and can fail. If none of your components are causing the breaker to trip it's the breaker itself.

Why does my aqua drive 1100 auto reset pool pump work in intervals of a few goes on for a few seconds then stops and after a few minutes it goes on again

Check for restrictions causing the pump motor to be overworked.
Motor is overheating, the the Thermal Overload Switch senses that and will trip. Once the motor cools, it will restart.

I assume the device being tripped is a GFCI -- the pump has a short to ground. Most practical solution is to replace the pump. Don't try to run it from an un-protected outlet (no GFCI) -- it's dangerous.

I am thinking the run capacitor is bad, if the motor has a centrifugal swith on the shaft under the motor cover, it could be sticking in the "start" position. This can be repaired with a non-conducting cleaner for the switch..

Overheats and trips off

internal thermal over loads in motor are working properly! how old is the motor? double check all vavles on the intake and discharge line to make sure that they are open? sounds like the pump is pushing against what is known as dead head pressure. obstruction in discharge line! if valves are ok you can take the jet covers off (the piece that helps direct flow of water) which will relieve some of the pressure should allow it to run without tripping tgermal overloads. if none of this works replace motor!!
