Dying Hinoki Cypress

I have a Hinoki Cypress that seems to be dying. It is a beautiful 40 year old bonsai, there is sap escaping vigorously from 2 spots on the trunk. I have tried to seal the spots but sap keeps leaking, would you have any ideas what could be causing this?

Pictures. Without them, telling you what might be wrong is more difficult. Information. Without it, we can't help you at all. Where is it being kept? How is it being kept? What kind of soil? How are you watering? Why are you watering? Are you using any ferts? How long have you had the tree? Have you done anything to it recently like repotting, pruning, root pruning? Is it inside or outside?
