If you have moisture in the freon you need a new dryer.But when you replace it also try and remove all the oil and flush the system. Replace the oil by weight and the freon also. Is this a factory air or after market air?

Is this an AIR compressor for running air tools and paint sprayers? What does you "system" consist of? Long runs of air hose or hardlines? You need to run a water separator out at the tool end. If you are using long air lines this is your only recourse. If you are using hard lines the same thing applies but it can be mounted to the wall with a short line to the tool. You may still have to run a small separater out at the tool just to keep the air dry.

No problem Dave. Move your separator to the other end of the hose and you'll be good.
