My palm nailer is leaking air on the inside


it still works fine as far as driving nails but i have to keep disconnecting it to prevent the compressor from running all the time.

It's a dewalt d51180. Should I open it to see if i can fix whatever's broken? Seems like maybe just an o-ring or something.

Or should I just junk it and buy a new one?

Fixed my own problem. For a reference : The inside of this thing is so simple, you would be hard pressed to screw it up. I took mine apart, wiped everything down, and regreased all the orings and gaskets using waterproof silicone grease (plumbing grease). There are only 4 pieces when you take it apart, so no sweat getting it to go back together.

Works great now!
