Will not fill a car tire

This compressor despite having almost 90 lbs of air won't fill a car tire. you have to work and work just to get a little to go in. i was told it was probably my valve stem freezing up. Not the case. it doesn't fill any tire on my car. not too happy about this dropping of 77 dollars with tax.

I have a 3 gallon air compressure that wont go above 40 psi

Mine has a little knob to turn to set the pressure. Mine is set at 120 lbs. Probably yours is set so tire pressure won't go over 40 but there should be a setting to set it what you want.

Yes, you will need a tire chuck to add air in the tire. And don't over fill the tire, okay?

Compressor will only hold 20 lbs and looking for some troubleshooting ideas

First check for obvious air leaks:
1. The drain valve on the bottom of the tank.
2. The air hose, both end connectors and the length of the air hose.
3. The air pump, where the line comes out of the pump and where it goes into the tank.
A spray bottle with soapy water works well for this. Sprayed on these areas, look for bubbles indicating a leak. If the motor/air pump is hot make sure the bubbles are not from the solution boiling away.
If these check out, you may have a damaged valve plate or piston/cylinder assenbly. Damage to either will not let the pump move enough air to fill your tank. To check these you have to remove the pump head. The check valve(s) are on a plate directly under the head. Check that the reed(s) are not chipped, cracked or broken off. They have to be in perfect condition to seal the incoming and outgoing air holes so air can be compressed enough to fill the tank. If OK, check the piston and cylinder. They have to be in very good condition to compress the air also. Some times the ring(s) around the piston get damaged and won't seal to the cylinder well. If any of these are damaged you'll have to replace them to get a good seal so air can be compressed and forced into the tank.

It is possible that the compressor psi as it is running drops below the tire psi creating a standoff. You must maintain air compressor psi over 110 to fill a tire to 110psi. Add air to your tire but stop when the compressor motor starts to run. When the motor stops then continue to add air until the compressor motor starts and again stop airing up the tire. Repeat as needed.
