Many times putting some air tool oil in the chuck of the gun when holding it upside down then hook up the air and squeezing the trigger will do the trick.Just watch out for the oil that will come shooting out the exhaust port.

+1 - some of my air tools have an 'oil' port and some don't. I just put a squirt in the air chuck like barnym17 says. Supposed to do it more often than I do but I always forget until the tool starts to falter.

I do about 3 drops of air tool oil per use in non consecutive days and lightly cover the exhaust with a rag so I don't shoot oil everywhere.

As stated above do that with the oil. As for losing power most the time pulling it apart and cleaning the plastic fins and all the old grease out dose wonders. And if you own a IR2135 or any model of that sort if the trigger starts to act up, remove the inlet for the air gun its self from the 2 holes in the handle. Then check the little cog that the trigger needle pushes for air to allow air to operate the gun. Every impact gun maker is different so they are not all easy to break down for a good thorough cleaning / inspection. Since im a auto mechanics by trade I do mine about once a month, cause I beat on them and I need them to last as long as they can.

I usually add enough oil until it comes out clear/clean. Oil is cheap guns are expensive!

And to fill some of the boredom during the slow months .............







Take your coworker's die grinder with rear exhaust and put 2 or 3 oz of Rand Lube ( the air gun oil we use in the shop ) in the air chuck when he's not looking. Move across the shop, out of reach of limbs, tools, and or projectiles thrown, and enjoy the show.







Peace
