2001 Ford Expedition F150 - the rear end of my car

2001 Ford Expedition F150 - the rear end of my car is sagging to the right. The leveling pump that I normally hear at the front end is still trying to pump. Any idea where I should start looking first ? Please help.... I really need my car. This only happened yesterday.

You could check for leaking hoses to the shocks
I would replace the 2 rear air shocks with conventional
ones & pull out the fuse for the compressor

Sounds like the seals may have failed in the air shocks themselves. I also think you may have a bleeder valve problem. Follow the lines back and check the bleeder valve to see if it is leaking when you have someone else turn the vehicle on.

Try jacking up the vehicle and putting it on jack stands letting the suspension hang down. Disconnect the battery for a few minuts and reconnect it and it should inflate the airbags and level off the suspension.

SOURCE: Rear end is sagging aaallloootttt!

What has probably happened is you got a hole or cracks in your airbag. Dealerships and mechanics typically diagnoses it as the compressor but that is only to keep you coming back and wasting more money on something that will never truly be fixed. Both the airbag and the compressor are the problem. The compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag will kill the compressor. 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. This is a PERMANENT fix. I added the link below so you can check it out. http://www.strutmasters.com/oldsmobile-suspension-parts-s/85.htm I hope I was of some help Good Luck!!!

Check to see where your height (level sensor) is and inspect it for damage or rusted parts.

If your rear end is in the front, does that mean your head is up your ---sorry, I really shouldn't go there, but I just couldn't resist... :)

Anyway, the vacuum supply for your front differential comes from the vacuum reservoir and the solenoids on the right fender apron. (see diagram)

Rear suspension sags


Your vehicle has air bags that are part of the suspension. They are made of rubber and over the years thaey get cracks in them.This also can cause the air pump to run continusly to the point of burning out the pump or blowing the fuse, There is also a little arm that attaches to the rear end that may have come off. This part goes to a sensor that could keep it from not airing up the air bags, If you don't hear the pump coming on see if the fuse has blown. If so replace the fuse see if the pump comes on. If it pumps the vehicle up get a spray bottle full of soapy water and spray each air bag to look for leaks. There is a place that sells remanufactured air bags on the internet or try this number 18665972397. hope this helps leave comment

thew motor you hear running is the compressor for the air ride or leveling system. if you dont hear the motor check the fuses. also there is a level sensor under the truc k in the rear and should be hooked to the rear end.

I have a 2001 Expedition, I don't have air bags in the front, the compressor don't work the air shocks. You have rear leveling. When they replaced the (compressor) did they turn the leveling switch back on. you may have air shocks connected to the compressor. Did the rear go down right after or over a couple of days. If the switch is on, turn it off and jack the rear up quiet a bit, make sure both side are quiet equal with each other, like it would be if it where raised by the air bags. Turn your level switch back on with it jacked up or sitting on stands. It may have went down so much that the compressor can't raise them back up.

I have a 1998 ford expedition with 4wd and it pulls to the right. I had the tires rotated and the wheels aligned twice. The problem remains.


You could be having uneven tires; front-brake dragging; broken or sagging springs. Have your front brakes checked.
