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 tohttp://www.arnottindustries.com/products/?gclid=CK-QqIqqqq4CFekbQgodyykdQw GOOD DAY.

SOURCE: Suspension Leveling System Problem for 1998 Lincoln Navigator

Hi :-)
I don't know how will this help, but you can check the car in the morning before you start it, look under it and check the level, is it dropped from the front or back. this way you can tell if you have a leak and where. if not then i think its the level sensor. in the 1998 you have two one in the front left. and one near the deferential in the back.

hope this helps you in anyway.
have a nice day.

SOURCE: location of air ride pump

it should be right under the hood (follow the small air lines to it)
If it is not there , then they hide them under the rear quarter panel on some models.
Follow the lines from the shocks to it .

SOURCE: air bags not filling to normal

It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed 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. I added the link below so you can check it out.
I hope I was of some help
Good Luck!!!

I went to Strutmasters and they hooked me up! I got a new non air conversion kit for my Lincoln and I love it. I loved the price too! If I would have known about this sooner I would have bought a kit a long time ago.

2001 ford expedition rear air suspension problems, 5.4 automatic,

1994 lincoln continental executive rear end goes down when the car is parked few hours.


When the key is off, the air suspension shouldn't lose any air, so you could have a valve leak in the system. I'm not familiar with all the components of the system, but did you check the valve that allows the system to bleed off pressure for leaks when the system is turned off?

well I will tell you my problem it maybe the same happening to you, every time I park the car for more than 4 hours it will lower the rear and after I start it will go to normal high, well the car have a air leak on one of the air bags in the rear, the compressor was pumping air almost all the time because of that to the point that one time just stop working. I have to buy new air compressor and 2 air bags. I bought them at www.arnottindustries.com not difficult to replace either.

Rear air bags lose air pump works when car stARTS


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

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

Lincoln Town car. Air suspension check light is on, rear is low


this car has rear air bags.(instead of coil springs perched on top of the rear end)the air suspension switch needs to be shut off whenever either or both rear wheels will be hanging free(ie. changing a rear tire or putting the car on a lift where the lift is not a "drive-on"ramp type lift.there is a height sensor near the rear end and what sometimes happens if someone "jacks up" the rear of the car without turning the air suspension switch OFF the air bags can be damaged and might need to be replaced.FIRST check all the fuses and make sure the switch is turned ON and start the car and let it run.with the hood open you should hear an air compressor running near the air filter box.if its not running sometimes ther will be a "schrader valve "similar to a tire valve on the comressor.try putting air in with an air hose like you would with a tire.if that does not work there should be a connector(probably in the trunk near the air bag switch) that you can get CODES out of with a scan tool .the code(s) will point you in the right direction as to what went bad(most likely the air bags) the air bags are like BIG RUBBER BALLOONS/BLADDERS that can get pinholes over time and leak or even blow out.hope this helps you.

My rear suspension on my 1997 expedition has dropped down but the air pump works fine when I hot-wire it. It does not work when it's plugged in. What should I try next?


HI. you may have a slow leak on one of the rear air lines that run to the bag. check the lines for leaks. if there are no leaks in the system, this will confirm a failed leveling system. the sensors will need to be replaced.

Air Ride on 1994 Buick Park Avenue


You have what is called a height/load leveler switch located on rear axle of vehicle .Check to see if the arm (which moves and kicks on compressor when ride height is low) Is connected and moving freely..You then might want to make sure that the air supply lines atatched to air shocks or air bags are not leaking.. If all checks out fine and you decide to disable compressor you can do this by unplugging harness that connects to compressor...And then you can manually adjust your ride height by adding air to the valve on compressor (it resembles a tire valve stem) this will adjust your your ride height and you can let air out at same location if lower height is desired.. This is a little inconveinient but will bypass automatic system as you requested.
