SOURCE: Air Compressor, low pressure
does the compressor keep running all the time but never gets above 40 or does it turn off at 40?
if it is turning off at 40 I would try using another gauge just to be sure it is 40psi, and if that is the case then you probably have a faulty pressure switch, if the compressor is constantly runnign but won't get past the 40psi then you may have a worn out compressor, check the oil for either a low level or if the oil is dirty, if it is you may just need to drain and refill but if that doesn't fix the issue then you will need to rebuild the compressor

the back pressure valve has failed it costs about 15.00 and can buy from any truck parts store That's Peterbilt trucks or any large truck stores it's one of two sizes 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch when you pull it off be sure you know which way the air flow is or it will not build up.

Ingersoll Rand likes you to buy their all season select oil for their air compressors, most piston air compressors use an R+O 100 oil it is equivalent to n SAE 30 wt oil.

When the compressor comes up to pressure and kicks off, you should normally hear a gasp of air escaping. That gasp is the release of pressure from the compressor itself - not the tank, and it is supposed to get released so that the compressor can restart without being preloaded with compressed air. My guess is that the gasp is not happening. It is probably some debris or a gummy mechanism. The mechanism is supposed to be triggered by the same mechanism that shuts off the motor.
