You would have to unplug compressor and remove airline and tie in a valve like one off of airshocks.
it is usually the air springs that rot and start leaking. so you will probably still leak down. you can replace with coil springs and do away with air ride your continental has airride front and rear?

this would do away with system all together

I have a 2006 lincoln navgator why in the front does it keep going down


The Navigator has an air ride (air bag) suspension system. It uses a compressor and air bags in the suspension to provide a smooth and level ride. These systems are fairly reliable, but can malfunction due to misuse or parts failure. A common problem with these is that you must turn off the air ride system before raising the vehicle on jacks or a lift. This is because the weight of the vehicle provides a feedback pressure to the compressor to allow it to determine proper level and shutoff point. If the vehicle's weight is removed from the suspension with the air ride on, the compressor can over-inflate the air bags and cause them to blow out and fail. Other things that can happen are leaking air hoses, o-rings, seals and such.

Rear air suspension will deflate but won't inflate. All fuses are good and the compressor relay has been replaced. Jumping out wires at the compressor relay will inflate and maintain height with the rear...


If it is easy to remove the sensor and the plugs are the same. I would try that. That will tell you if the sensor is bad(the rear will inflate). Or if it is the module. (It won't inflate).

2001 ford expedition rear air suspension problems, 5.4 automatic,


check the ride height air valves as I suspect that there may be a problem there . When parked the valves will be sealing off correctly but when in use as in driving the constant variations may be letting more air out than the valve will be letting in to maintain ride height

Air suspension


with the information provided, I would have to say that you probably have a leak in an airline or one of the airbags themselves. If you have released the pressure in the system and it will not inflate than its probably a faulty compressor(air pump).. always check the basics first.. start with the air ride fuse.

How difficult is it to remove airbags in a 2001 ford expedition and replace with shocks?


With out seeing the vehicle, it is difficult to say. There are fuses that control the small compressor that inflates the bags, the wiring could be faulty. the compressor could be bad. The control switch could be bad, I am not sure what activates the compressor on that model, weather it is automatic load leveling or manual leveling with a switch inside the car.
It might pay to get a manual such as haines for your perticular model. Sorry I couldnt be more helpful, but electricly controled systems like this are hard to trouble shoot without seeing them.

Back end sits very low


I bought an '02 Bravada a couple months ago. I was told that this is normal. Since it's an air ride suspension the air escapes when the vehicle is not in use like overnight. Then after starting up the air compressor will turn on and inflate the air ride suspension.

The compressor quit is there a place to manually inflate the air bags until i get the replacement compressor


You will probably be able to find an air inflation port mounted on the rear axle near where the bags are mounted. Make sure the kill switch for the bags has not failed keeping power from going to the compressor.

Mine does same thing. 1990 Continental


the compressor sits under the fender and is held in place by 4 rubber mounts to lower noise, sounds like the leak is in one of the valves at the top of the strut ? if you like this car the perment fix is to by a kit from strutmasters .com and replace all 4 air bags and it will ride like the old pre 90s cont , good luck p.s this is about $1,200 ouch

Rear air ride shock over inflate and will not deflate


I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at the conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!
