Good morning, my name is ***** ***** I am sorry you are having some issues so whether you can fix it or it needs towed is entirely dependent on whether the air compressor is bad or not. The mp8 is a gear driven air compressor and if it were me and where its located I would rather change it in a shop. However there are a few other things that it could be. Do you think it would be possible for you to take pictures of the air dryer? And do you have an air governor mounted on the drivers side firewall by the wiper linkage? Do you have any large air leaks? How is the weather? Any possibility of ice formation in the lines?
