I have a Clarke Ranger 2HP 20 GL air compressor. It's pretty much the same as all the Chinese compressors in it's class. Well, it's having an 'issue'. When I use it, I only get one burst of air. The regulator gauge shows full pressure, but when I use the air nozzle for example, I get one shot and the gauge on the regulator drops fast​ and comes back up slowly. 

Any thoughts on what I have going on?

Take the regulator off and see what you get direct from the tank. Of course unplug and bleed the tank first.  Water logged? Don

Sounds like a pressure regulator or the line is mostly plugged. Without pics I can't tell the layout of the system. Good Luck, Rick
