Air compressor questions
Some time back I tried to use the air valve in the trunk to fill a flat. The compressor kicks on, and I get about 70 PSI (That'* a guess, I don't honestly remember exactly what showed on the gage).
But it wouldn't fill a tire, even after I jacked the car up to take as much load off the tire as possible. The compressor just kept running, the gage dropped to near zero. Finally I just pulled the wheel and brought it up to the gas station to fill.
From time to time the compressor kicks on when I shut the car off, runs for 30-45 secs, and shuts off. I hadn't heard it in quite awhile, but yesterday I had a passenger in the back, and it kicked on when I shut the engine off.
1) I'm guessing there is a leak somewhere, most likely a problem with the compressor itself.
a) Is this (the compressor) the best place to start troubleshooting?
b) If it is a problem with the compressor, is this something I should attempt to repair, or am I better off bringing it somewhere to be rebuilt, or just replacing? I have a limited set of tools, but if there is such a thing as a rebuild kit, I'm pretty sure I could do the work.
2) The lumbar supports don't work for either seat. You hear a pump running, but nothing inflates. I'd always assumed the bladders were shot. Is there one compressor for everything, or do the seats have their own compressor?
