    What you have is a leak. It may, or may not have ruined your compressor due to overheating.

    To pin point the leak I have found it easier to have a mechanic find the leak.

    If it is the air spring(s) and you are somewhat of a mechanic yourself then replacing one or both of them is a snap. Held in place by large snap ring on top. Be careful of lines and valve O-ring though. Valve on spring turns out in a Z pattern.

    If it is a line(s) then have your mechanic perform this repair.

    They also sell replacement spring set for this car as well.

    I have a 99 lincoln town car and the rear air ride leaks off overnight. My son said he was outside one night and heard air leak off all at once. When the car is started it levels right out and stays all day.

What you have is a leak in your line(s) or spring(s). Usually the air spring.
Take it to a mechanic and have the system tested. You may also have to replace the compressor due to overheating.
If it is a air spring and you are somewhat of a mechanic yourself then replacing the air spring is a snap. Held in place by large clip on top of spring. Be careful of the line(s) and valve o-ring when air spring is loose. Valve turns out in z pattern.

If you are fed up, there also is a spring replacement set that you can find online.

When you turn the key to the on position does the air compressor start. If it does then you have a leak somewhere, you need to try and find it with soapy water. More than likely its the air bag but you can check the air lines.

Are you kidding? if you cant nail it down to the compressor, the air lines, or the air shocks you shouldnt even be asking this question. Take it to a mechanic and save everyone from the headache that is you. oh, a good fix might be to smash the car.

Why won't rear end raise up ?


I have a 2000 Lincoln Town car, had the same problem, it was the rear air suspension/shocks. They are air bags basically that levels your car and it cost about $300.00 for each at the dealer for parts and install but it also has its own motor that inflates and deflates these air bags and I also had to replace that and that cost over $400.00 installed at the dealer.

Trying to find a wiring diagram for air compressor. Rear air ride is out compressor not running at all checked fuses just replaced relay .


I know that you are trying to fix that air ride, but i put these replacement springs on my 93 towncar. Fixed the compressor problem (eliminated it) and cost a whole lot less. The install is kinda hard if you've never dropped a rear end before. Need a good tool set, a couple jacks, and jack stands to get it done. Check it out. Even having a mechanic install them would be cheaper than replacing a compressor.

Air Ride issues


My mom has an old Lincoln, they're great aren't they. At least that's what she thinks. :) When I had to help her fix her problem with her back end dropping I contacted Strutmasters. They made me aware of the air ride and the difference in a conversion kit for it. We purchased the product and fixed the problem. Since then I have used them for my own vehicle and suggested them to friends. Now I am suggesting them to you, they will help you out tremendously!!!! GOOD LUCK
