Question about 1991 Buick Park Avenue
I have a 98 buick park ave. I had the rear air shocks replaced, then the air pump wouldn't stop running, so the mechanic unplugged it. that is fine when the car is empty, the car drops too low when loaded. i can't find the air pump to replace it, is it fairly easy to change out?
The airpump is located right above the exhaust. Its very easy to have it removed. I have had many problems with the air ride systems. Check to make sure the air lines werent rubbing against the tires...the compressor can be picked up used at many salvage yards for 50 bucks, but if te compressor is lifting the car, then there could be other issues.

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 .

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. Airbags and compressors are constantly having to be replaced. Also something alot of people don't know is that theses air suspensions are not meant to be in temperatures above 90 Degrees or below 40 Degrees. That is most of the world. The temperature will cause you to replace alot of bags. and typically when your replacing a bag you are going to have to replace the compressor to because the bag had a hole or small crack in it causing the compressor to over work and it will die. I posted the link below so you can take a look
I hope I was of some help
