How to recognize a broken air compressor?

Defects in the air compressor can be caused by various factors, such as exposure to moisture or lack of maintenance. Over time, components can wear out due to cracks, corrosion, and other defects. The cylinder head can also warp due to the formation of a thick carbon layer on the inside. The lack of coolant or higher oil emission can lead to overheating and device seizure.

It is important to regularly inspect the air compressor to detect any defects before they lead to serious problems. A special meter on the dashboard indicates whether the pressure in the system reaches the desired level or increases too slowly. During maintenance work, the head of the device is disassembled, the pistons and valves cleaned, the components checked, and the necessary replacements made.
