Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

Load Leveler lowers after several hours in the garage at night.

After my 1997 Lincoln Continental is in the garage at night the rear end is lowered to just over the height of the rear tires. When I start up in the morning the compressor kicks in and the level is raised and is OK during the day. Is this normal.

No. once the engine is off and the doors shut, the suspension should stay at the height it is at. Sounds like you have a slow leak somewhere. Either listen very carefully at the compresor and lines and air springs, or spray a solution of water and dish liquid on all connections & watch for bubbles. Report back.

Could have a solenoid leaking too. We'll worry about that later.

1994 lincoln continental executive rear end goes down when the car is parked few hours.


When the key is off, the air suspension shouldn't lose any air, so you could have a valve leak in the system. I'm not familiar with all the components of the system, but did you check the valve that allows the system to bleed off pressure for leaks when the system is turned off?

Rear deck speakers don't work


Nissan's 2008 Altima was offered in several trim levels, ranging from the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder model to the sportier 3.5-liter V-6 Coupe. While the high-end trim levels were equipped with a premium Bose-developed nine-speaker sound system, lower-end Altima models were fitted with a standard six-speaker system mated to a single-disc CD player.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I need to remove the rear seat of a 96 Lincoln Continental


Push the lower seat cushion toward the rear of the car and lift, there's 2 hooks approx. 12" or so either side of the center of the seat.
The seat back is held in with 2 bolt located on the lower outside corners.

You'll have to unbolt the seatbelts from the floor to completely remove the seat back.

I just purchased a 1997 lincoln continental and the rear suspension deflates at night but when it is started in the morning,it reflates. Is this normal?


it should deflates only at trim height and shld stay at that level considering that there is no leak on the rear air suspension. Most probably leaking rear air suspension is the problem. The system works up to 45 minutes only after ignition off and will maintain the trim height

Rear air ride suspension is not maintaining height


The are ride height adjusters the look like arms. they are mounted on the bottom of the struts and lower control arms that control the height The can be adjust but for the most part if the were working fine before then they need to be replaced. Make sure that there are no leaks in the system.

The system should reset itself if you drive it, the pump is under the hood on the pass side I think, there is a tire like valve there, I think you can bleed it off there, also the dealer can operate the system with a hand held tester and lower it.

Stuck in high position


On this model vehicle the rear shockers should have air bags to keep car at normal ride height, when load changes.
The air bag can sometimes become caught between inner and outer tubes of shocker when car is raised and lowered quickly.
You will need to jack car up from tow hitch or frame to lower rear axle, this will unfold air bag, slowly lower car, with ignition on, this will make sure air compressor is filling air bags as they take the load.
Hope this is helpful, MMP
