2001 expedition air suspension 2 front air bags work and rear only one works what can it be


The best solution is to replace the air shocks with
the conventional conversions, offered by several
companies

Brand New or Older Navigators or Expeditions are not
worth the expense of diagnosing those systems, time
& time again

Most people like the ride of the conversion

Check all the big shock names on the internet

If you need more, I have auto trade publications I get free
& lots of vendors in there

MY REAR AIR BAGS AND SHOCKS ARE DONE FOR ON MY 1988 LINCOLN MARK 7 IF I REPLACE JUST THE SHOCKS HELP ME OUT FOR A WEEK TILL I CAN BUY THE AIR BAGS PLEASE HELP P.S. AIR BAGS ARE TORN IN REAR ONLY?


Replace all your Air Bag Suspension with conventional
non air ride parts.

Too expensive to maintain air suspension on an older
vehicle.

There are several companies that offer those products

You can't use a car with deflated air bags,have to be
replaced

I have a 1997 Lincoln Continental and the back air bags arent working I replaced the battery and the air bag but its still on the ground. Is it possible that the alternator is the problem?


Has vehicle been wrecked before ? What does still on the ground mean .The air bag system should have fuse/relays also I would check these...Check under hood power block and fuse panel at dash.
It is possible to short out fuse or relay during removal and installation of air bag.

I'm installing an aftermarket steering wheel on a 98 buick park ave with driver air bag, i bought an adapterkit from grants is that all i need?


No. You will probably have to take the car to garage or dealership to safely remove the existing air bag. If you try to diassemble it yourself you run the risk of setting it off and putting yourself in the hospital or worse.

Air suspension in the rear will not hold air in Mark vll lincion


there are 2 ways of fixing that problem you can replace whats broken which is more than likely the air bags, which is expensive, or you can get an aftermarket set up with regular springs and do away with the air bag system completely it's not hard to convert it over just unplug the compressor jack up the car to lift the weight off of the suspension put a jack under the rear end housing and loosen the the shocks and lower the rearend housing remove the air bags put springs in their place jack up the rear end bolt shocks back up and your done.

Shocks and/or struts worn out


The rear air bags are probably blown, or an air line broke. The lincoln air bag systems can be expensive to repair, about $300 a side for the bags if i remember correctly. Aftermarket companies make replacement springs, getting rid of the air bag all together and at a more reasonable price. A google search will point you in the right direction to aquire parts for either direction you chose to go.

My Rear suspension stop working on my 97 Expedition. The rear Bags are about 6 mos old. The compressor is working. It was working fine yesterday but this morning when I started up my truck and drove away...


sounds like possibly the bags are blown or either lines leaking if it's the bags blown out there are a couple choices replace the bags obviously or you can get an aftermarket kit to do away with the air ride suspension and put regular springs and shocks under it which is alot cheaper than new bags. but make sure you don't have a line that has ruptured
