What are the warning signs, if any, when the leveler (rear air suspension) is about to go out?


If a slow air leak has developed in either an air bag or in any of the tubing (there's a lot) or in the valve at the air pump, you will hear the air pump running more often.

Eventually, the pump will be unable to raise the car to the required height (working against the leak) within the time-out period (about a minute) and then it will give up, stop pumping, and a light on the dash will come on indicating an air suspension problem (or maybe on your relatively newer car, the digital dash may show an error message - I don't know).

I've had an '88, a '91, and a '94. Both the '91 and the '94 had air suspension faults at various times, and none of them were air bag leaks. I've had the valve at the pump stick and/or/leak on both cars, and the tubing spring a leak on one as well. Apparently the air bags are pretty well made and don't fail as often as the other components (in my experience).

I have a 1999 Lincoln Town Car. My Air Suspension light is on what does this mean?


If you car is not 'slammed' (low in the front, or back, or both) it is usually the air compressor 'timing out'-running too long to fill the system. The bags eventually leak, and are almost guaranteed to need replacing every 8 to 10 years-if you have gotten this long without replacing any of them, you did well, but get ready because once they start to go, they go together. It is cheaper to replace the bags now since it will save your pump-the pump get to the point that it overheats and fails, adding greatly to the repair.

Rear suspension collapse,can it be replaced with heavy duty springs?


The answer to your question is yes. They do sell a replacement springs for that vehicle.You may have air bags on the rear that appear to be leaking down you might check the air lines for leaks but most the time its the bags themselves that are leaking. This could get expensive replacing the bags the alternative to this is take them out and install coil springs with shocks. They sell the replacement conversion springs to your vehicle in a set the shocks will have to be purchased seperately. I did this to a lincoln town car for a customer of mine worked out well and didnt even notice a difference in the ride. Instructions will come with it and how to disable the wire so that the air suspension light will not come on.

I have a 1995 Town Car Signature Series. The rear


Sadly, there is no way to turn the light off. I had the air suspension on my Lincoln replaced with the spring kit, and the light is still on. I had a friend take the instrument panel apart and place a small piece of electrical tape over the "check suspension" light. Also, be certain to turn the air suspension pump switch off. It is located in the trunk on the right side.

Air suspension light came on I turned the car off light went off, then I noticed the rear end of my car was low. What could that be?


It is your air ride suspension. It could be the air bags, the sensors, compressor, wires and many other things. What I did was bought an after market coil spring suspension and converted it from the air ride suspension. The air ride is lovely but costly. It is hard to diagnose that air ride suspension without spending a lot more money then you want. I suggest getting an after market converter kit, but I would make sure it has the sensor plug so that your warning light on your dash goes out....otherwise it will be on forever!

Trying to replace airshocks on 1999 lincoln towncar


Air shocks or air bag suspension? Shocks can be replaced with a "coil-over" shock like those made by monroe. To replace spring/air bag system, you would need to experiment with spring combination's to find what works...likely more expensive than changing what's wrong with original stuff.
