I recently purchased a new porter cable impact driver and it doesn't feel like other impacts I've used. For some reason I have to put a lot of pressure on the thing to get it to just drive a nail through a 2x4. I've used Milwaukee, dewalt, makita, and other impacts before and you need to put almost no pressure on them to drive a nail. Has anyone had this problem before and know why it's doing this?

Have you thought of the possibility that the drill isn't finding any resistance and that is why it is no impacting? and when your "applying pressure" that just happens when the impact function kicks in
