Question about 2007 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

1996 lincoln continental air suspension

I recently had all the suspension bags replaced, but within a couple weeks after a solenoid malfunctioned and activated the pump but would not let the air back out, after it raised the car up ridiculously high i unplugged the pump to keep from blowing the new bags, but it was still too late for the pump, it quit working, i am guessing it burnt up. i replaced the pump with a good used one, and after i turned on the key the pump released the air and lowered the car back down, but it let all the air out, and now the car is sitting on the ground, and the pump isn't coming on, i checked the high current fuse under the hood and the fuse under the dash, but they were good,i also tried flipping the switch on and off in the trunk, i can hear a couple clicks under the car but no pump. is there a safety switch that may have tripped when the car was too high? any suggestions would help, i am very frustrated because i don't know what to check next, and i cant drive the car so it has sat in my garage for the last 2 months, please help

    i checked all the connections but none were loose or unhooked, it is like the car is in deflate mode, even if i jump a wire across the pump to activate it, it wont put air in the bags, it bleeds out of the release valves just as soon as it gets to each bag

I have the same issue. Mine is a leak in the air suspension. The first thing to do is go to your under hood fuse box (the one with the oversized fuses) The fuse will be a 30 amp (large green) fuse. If the fuse is blown just go to Pep Boys,Kragen,or Autozone and they are less than $3.00. If this fixes it the air suspension will fill up within a couple of minutes (with car running) Usually these fuses will blow when you have a leak and the small compressor that fills your suspension gets overworked causing the fuse to blow. If that is the case with your vehicle keep a couple extra fuses handy until you get the car serviced. The only time you should flip the switch to the off position is when you are raising the car on a jack. Make sure the switch is flipped on when you replace the fuse.

It sounds like they didn't shut the air suspension before putting it on the lift and hyperextended the bag(s).

I fought with the same issue on my 1997 Mark VIII a few years back, and it turned out that there was a clog in the air line (just a piece of dirt that looked like a tiny piece of the air line itself.

Could also be a loose or leaking air line, since the pump runs and stops at a fixed interval.Make sure that the system actually gains pressure. If not, start checking for an air leak!

Hope that's helpful!

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?

Shocks are leaking

If you are describing the air suspension you need to use soapy water on the suspension bags and airlines to find the leak when they are trying to inflate. Air suspension parts can leak, some air solenoids or airlines can develop leaks.

For metal parts, there can be struts which are fluid filled and when they leak they must be replaced.

Air ride suspension leaking in rear of car is their a better solution than air car is a 1994 continental has 104k runs great thats the only thing wrong is the air ride suspension...

It is possible to go with conventional springs/shocks instead of the air ride system. This has become a common "fix" for faulty air bags due to the expense. The ride will still be great, you will only lose the load leveling ability that the air bags provided.

The air bags when it better to buy them new or just add the suspension?

Your best, with a Continental or Lincoln Navagator, to just
replace the air suspension with conventional shocks/struts,
after your vehicle is about 8 years old and you have put
time and money into previous air system problems

Strutmaster you hear a lot of and there has to be others

No. The Lincoln Continental does not have air bags in the front. It is not exactly hard to convert the rear airbags to springs. It is more time consuming than anything. I have a 1996 Town Car, I had a mechanic replace the air shocks with springs.

Air suspension is controlled by the compressor in your engine compartment.  The compressor runs when the suspension is not level.  Either because you have loaded the car with exceptional weight and the system is now adjusting the ride, or you have a leak in the system, or you have a bad sensor.
If you have a leak, the most likely culprit are the air suspension bags, the air suspension solenoids or possibly the lines to them.
Try these sites:

I don't work for either of them.  I own a 96 TC and have replaced my air suspension with coil springs form Strutmasters.  Work GREAT and I have no more air suspension problems.  Rides just as good too.  You can't tell the difference.
