Thanks billman. I read your post prior to checking my air pump and I specifically looked around and felt around it by taking the front bumper off. Everything all good. In thinking it's the valve sticking. Anyway to treat it before replacing the valve completely? Btw anyone have an actual pic of how the white check valve is positioned. Several diagrams are confusing.
Btw what type if electrical failure do you mean. The stem works, turns on and off during cold starts.
According to this pic here I found, my white check valve is fitted on correctly:
Another issue it may be is in this pic. of the solenoid valve, there is a long round item placed on top of a suction valve, in mine, it is just some sort of plastic cap that restricts suction.
Here are a few more pics i took in case you guys can spot something that i couldn't:
