ridgid air compressor low pressure output


my OL50135 ridgid air compressor is not producing enough pressure to even inflate car tires, not sure when this happened. i haven't changed the air filter in the 5 or 6 years i've had it (although i don't use it that much) and was planning on changing that, anything else i should check?

the manual says the following:
1. Broken reeds
2. Connections leaking
3. Dirty filter
