I would suspect you have a leak in the system most likely at the air bags themself. They are probably starting to dry rot at the bottom of them due to age and mileage. If you have access to a lift and raise the car up into the air so the bottom of the bags are exposed, when on the ground the bag folds at the bottom so it you may not be able to see this otherwise. Inspect the bottom of the bags for cracks in the rubber.

My VTcommodore runs for a while then stops i might try to start it 10 times then it will run again it might go 50 meters or 10 klms then stop .it might not start again for 24 hrs then run perfectly for 20...

check your crank angle sensor. start your car then wait for it to stop again then pour a descent amount of water over it then start your car again. if that works, u will need to get it replaced. sensor is to the top of the pulley at the bottom of the motor (big bottom pulley). hope this works

Engine runs really rough for about 10 mins., then runs smooth until I turn it off, then rough again

Power is reduced, oil when the engine has a stuffy as small hammer knock. Serious damage the crankshaft and connecting rod, and even lead to piston broken, hurt the body and the cylinder head. Recommended maintenance as soon as possible.more go hobd2

What does the air suspension light mean?

It could mean the compress motor has running longer than usual, or you just forgot to turn the switch (in trunk) back on. Usually it means there is a leak in the suspension air bag so the motor keeps pumping. Checked the 2 air bags just like check flat tires, put soapy water and see if bubbles come out. I bought the bags online for about $95 each.

Air Compressor Motor Going Off?

What is probably going on is the air suspension has a leak so the compressor is breaking down. So it will run at odd times trying to make up for the times it can not run. What you need to do is look for a conversion kit. The conversion will stop all problems that you are having now and you will never have to worry about it again. I would recommend They have great prices and there kits are guaranteed to last the life of the car.

I hope I was of some help

Good Luck!!!

Air suspension motor running

If you have a hole or crack in your airbag the compressor has to work extra hard to try to blow it up (like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it) I would recommend checking out they have some great kits for the Ninety Eight. There kits will eliminate any problems with the suspension. It is a permanent fix. 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. And for a very affordable cost. I added the link below so you can check it out.

Hopefully this will help

Good Luck!!!
