I turn my pump on, it starts pumping then about 10-15 sec it shuts off. Doesn't seem as loud or pulling pressure either.

Check the label and then the wiring on the motor to see if you are wired 120 or 240 first. If you are supposed to get 240 and are getting 120, the motor will run @ 1/2 speed for a little while and then shut off. If this continues, your motor will short out. If your motor is getting 240 volts while running, you have a bad motor.

When i turn the pump on it gets hot and shuts off. i am having trouble with the wiring i believe.please help i am trying to wire it to a 110 connection

If the motor is getting hot enough to shut down it's time for a new motor. Many of the new motors need to be ordered in as 110v or 220v and are no longer able to be wired eather way. You will need to take the pump apart and take it in to a motor shop and have them get you a new one or a reconditioned one and they can tell you how to wire it as every brand is different.

2 hp vertical sta-rite well pump

Did you prime the pump? To prime: Before turning pump on, unscrew plug cap from top of pump (usually on pump impeller housing,) and with a pitcher or garden hose, fill pump full of water, and replace plug. Then turn pump on and see if problem is solved. If leaking: Are all fittings tight, O-rings and seals new, and is there any pipe thread tape on all threads w/o seals?
