Question about 1994 Cadillac Fleetwood
The rear air shocks are fully inflated and the car rides like a truck with loud clunking coming out of the back on bumps. Last week I checked the sensor, which seemed to be working to turn the compressor on, but would not open the solenoid to let the air out when I manually rotated the arm after disconnecting it from the suspension arm. I checked the computer for codes and found nothing. After exiting the information system the computer cycled the compressor and then opened the solenoid to released the air then the suspension worked fine, for a few days. Then gradually it stated to inflate the rear shocks and now again the shocks are fully inflated and the car is clunking again. Bad solenoid? Bad control system? Also, if anyone knows, where is the compressor and solenoids, when the compressor is running it sounds like its coming from left front. Can I access them thought he engine compartment?
I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at the 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.
