Hi Marco, take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and that should be able to pin point the actual problem. I believe the vehicle may have picked up a slow puncture or maybe there is a problem with a valve? the reason for my diagnosis is that the air bag is able to pump during a journey and then deflates (I hope we're talking about he suspension; I haven't heard of a ford with air suspension, but that does not mean they don't make one.) If we're talking about the SRS air bag system then a scan is even more important) Regards John

1995 international flat six diesel 466 wont run changed fuel filter losend lines bleed out air wont run squirt eathier starts dies

Make sure you pre fill the filters with clean fuel. Locate the hand primer usually near the fuel lift pump. Unscrew the top till it pops up. Pump repeatedly until it gets hard to pump. You can crack the injector lines while pumping till fuel comes out or have someone crank the engine with the starter while you continue to pump the hand primer. Make sure after it's running the pump is pushed all the way down and tightened back up

I have 1988 Honda Shadow motorcycle vt600c balls out at high RPM's and sputters when revving engine in neutral loses power at 45 mph when I take air filter off loses power at 65 mph could this be fuel...

This sounds like a flooding carb due to a broken float, or it could be a faulty fuel pump, or a blocked fuel line, Start from where the fuel leaves the tank up to the carburettor checking the fuel hose for leaks(maybe also sucking air on pumping. Or could also be dirt in the jets thats why it goes faster when you remove the air filter. The spitting of fuel is because the motor is turning eratically thus slowing down the pumping or sucking (it's relative to the amount of revolutions the motor is turning) This should be an easy one.

Im not sure what year,make or model this car is but i can tell you that it sounds like you have leaking bags, the problem is if you keep driving this way the compressor pump will go bad, replace the bags and the selinoids on the bags now before you cause more damage. agood test is to use a spray bottle with dish soap added and spray around bags, you will see a lot of cracks on the bags look for bubbles. theres a web site company we deal with all the time and there the best when it come to price and good parts, go to GOOD DAY.

How do you "manually" bleed the air bags in a 96 Lincoln Cont. ?

Shut off pump switch located in drivers side panel door in trunk. Jack up car at frame and support with jack stands. This will make sure the car does not come down on you when you release the air.
Pop retaining off of solenoid valve located at top of airbag and turn valve to first stop till air starts releasing

Check air suspension dash light comes on

I would suggest replacing the drier as it sounds like its had enough.

The Venting is controlled by two Solonoids*sp that open to let the air in or out depending what its being told to, otherwise its just from drier to the bags.

If there leaking the fast you may need to replace them, there not ment to last forever.

If your pumping the suspension from flat after it goes down it can cause damage to the bags repumping them full as its alot of strain on them.
