Question about 1998 Lincoln Town Car
If i park it,it stays up.then i can drive it and it will stay up,but when i stop for a period of time it drops all the way down,some times it will drop while im driveing.,but parked it will stay up.
I had this problem before with my older lincoln...It really doesn't have too much to do with whether your driving or parking, but more the level sensor.
Mechanics have told me they can be tricky.
You're problem could either be a sensor and/or your bags & lines. If you're lines are just leaking, then you're bags will soon follow along with the rest of the system, you're best bet is get coil converters, my mechanic said if you've got a towncar, you can fit it with a crown vic's suspension, a Continental, you would replace with a Taurus's susp and so on.
LIke I siad, you may be lucky and only have a cheap easy repair like a bad sensor or one of the lines or maybe even you're compressor's just gettin' a little old (which if your car only sags when you're driving, so it most likely is an easy repair), but from personal experience with a couple different lincolns, if one thing is going the others are soon going to follow, so get ready to buy some coils in the future, but this is what you're issue is.
Hope this helps, good luck!
Oh, and if you price compare the whole system being replaced, with the whole system, the air susp is about $2,000...The coils...Like $450!!!
