Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

My air suspension deflates often

The dealer wants to replace it. I think it is just a sticky valve.

    My 2000 Expediton suspension also occasionally deflates. If the problem was a leaking air bag, would not the compressor be running all the time trying to keep height adjusted? With out any knowlege, I was leaning toward replacing the module of height sensor but hate just to throw parts at the problem.

    I almost every case I have seen the problem is a leaky airbag, this is especially true if the truck is nearing 100,000 miles

2000 lincoln navigator air suspension will not deflate


There is a Master deflate valve that is usually mounted on the drivers side under the front fender wheel well. That is if your compressor is not turning off.

The dump valve gets a signal when a door opens to lower the car for loading or unloading.

With electric work being what it is, a really good diagnostic machine can plug into your air controlled ride system and quickly and accurately spot the bad part.

It is cheaper to buy 1 correct part than several wrong part guesses.

Air suspension will not deflate


You need to find someone with a scan tool that can access the air suspension and manually cycle the individual springs to restore level. As a word of advise, turn the air suspension switch off, before you hoist the vehicle. This will prevent the compressor from inadvertently filling the air springs.

Why won't rear end raise up ?


I have a 2000 Lincoln Town car, had the same problem, it was the rear air suspension/shocks. They are air bags basically that levels your car and it cost about $300.00 for each at the dealer for parts and install but it also has its own motor that inflates and deflates these air bags and I also had to replace that and that cost over $400.00 installed at the dealer.

AIR COIL SPRINGS WILL DEFLATE AND BE DAMAGED IF YOU DID NOT TURN OFF AIR SUSPENSION SYSTEM BEFORE RAISING VECHICLE AND CHANGE TIRES IF YOU DONT TURN OFF AIR SUSPENSION IT WILL CAUSE AIR SPRINGS TO OVER INFLATE CAUSE AIR SPRING SPRING DAMAGE.

My rear air bags are too high and will not deflate. The sensor is connectod ok on the rear arm. How can I deflate it manually. It is on a 1994 mark VIII


you can remove the rear lines at the air bags to deflate. most likely the problem is the air suspension control module is not turning the venting valve on to release the air from the bags.

My licoln navigator front suspension is not working..stays deflated


First, you should have a warning light telling you it is not working. There is a switch for the air suspension underneath the glovebox-right hand side or in the rear hatch area on the left panel..make sure it's on. If all 4 air bags are deflated it could mean the air pump or actuator is malfunctioning.

1997 expedition 2 wheel drive air suspension problem


There are ride height sensors in the rear that send a signal to the ride height/load leveling control module, one of these ,may be defective. Have Ford dealer run an active test of the system, they will find out what the part is that has failed, otherwise you are guessing, that equals wasted $$$
