How to Prevent a Compressor Stall
Compressor stalls are a problem that plagues many small engines. They are often the result of poor maintenance, particularly in older vehicles. When the air pressure is not sufficient to achieve desired RPMs, the air compressor stalls. If not quickly addressed, the stall will cause engine damage and even vehicle damage, if the compressor stalls while it is running.
The most common cause of an air compressor stalls is because of an improper tire inflation method. Most drivers know when their tires are low on air. It is only when they discover this problem on their own that they make the effort to check their tire pressures. A simple vacuum should be able to correct the problem. If not, it is time to seek out the proper services of a tyre fitter or a mechanic that specializes in air compressor stalls. Many major tire companies can offer assistance and advice for this problem.
Another cause of compressor stalls is the vehicle’s manual. Manuals are not always up to date on the best methods of inflation. The reason for this is that these methods are kept out of the hands of mechanics and technicians. The best manual companies work with vehicle manufacturers to update the manual and correct the problems that are discovered. The work on your air compressor should be taken care of by a technician that specializes in vehicle inflation and repairing compressor stalls. This is the only way to ensure that your compressor stalls safely and effectively. Please don’t wait until you have a problem with your air compressor, get it checked by a mechanic and it may save your life!
