its fixed! still working flawlessly after four days! please contact me for details. i am a professional autobody shop in the portland oregon area. i will repair compressors for far less than replacement cost. this is not rocket science......its an air compressor with parts that wear out prematurely due to poor design. it can be fixed without any special parts. stop spending your hard earned money on an assembly when you dont have to. its not a (spray oil into the intake) easy fix. the compressor must be disassembled and rebuilt.
