This is hard to say without knowing what type of car, i will assume its a lincoln, the most common problem is with the air bags, if this has been a problem for a while in which the car would lift up after starting due to a leaking bag then i would say that you will need a new compressor also. what happens is the compressor runs until it gets hot and goes bad, sometimes the fuse will blow before the compressor goes bad, you would need to check fuse in the engine compartment.

My airbag suspencion lowered the back end of my car and won't lift back up again


Most likely if its anything like the old lincolns the airbag/shocks are blown. If this is the original set on this vehicle very good possibility. Best fix is a replacement set or if the coil over option is available much sturdier.

How do I fix A leak in the air bag suspencion


In This car the leak is ALWAYS the airbag it self, and it is usually the front two that leak. Replacing them requires the front suspension be disassembled.

After I turn off my car, there is a loud sound like a motor running under the car. Is this from the compressor for the air suspension? I also get a roaring noise when I am driving that comes from the rear...


Then noise you hear after shutting off the car very well might be the air suspension compressor. The air ride system is still activated for a half hour after the vehicle has been shut off. The roaring noise from the rear could be a bad bearing. The rear axle seals don't always leak when a bearing goes out. So it's not a conclusive indication that they are good just because the seals aren't leaking. If your mechanic isn't too versed in differentials it may be advisable to seek an opinion of a reputable transmission shop (however, that may be a difficult task).

The check suspension light came on. I have noticed that the vehicle is sitting uneven after the airbags deflate once the vehicle is turned off. Lately the vehicle also seems to not have an airbag inflating...


Definitely sounds like there is a leak in your air suspension somewhere. I'd have a local shop check it out. There is a switch for the air suspension either underneath the glovebox right hand side of firewall. or in the back of the vehicle behind the left panel. it is labeled suspension

Air suspension not leveling the vehicle as it should


no the air supply line must be leaking to the air bag, go back and complain, these bags last about 75-100,000 miles.

Air suspension motor running


If you have a hole or crack in your airbag the compressor has to work extra hard to try to blow it up (like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it) I would recommend checking out strutmasters.com they have some great kits for the Ninety Eight. There kits will eliminate any problems with the suspension. It is a permanent fix. 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. And for a very affordable cost. I added the link below so you can check it out.

Air Suspension


What has probably happened is you got a hole or cracks in your airbag. Dealerships and mechanics typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. Both the airbag and the compressor are the problem. The compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our 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. This is a PERMANENT fix. I added the link below so you can check it out.
