Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

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.
