I assume you mean the air pump for the the rear air shocks. Somewhere in the airlines or fittings you'll find the leak.
Just follow from end to end. If need be, fix up a spray bottle of dishwashing liquid & water. Spray the air hose & fittings liberally, the detergent will produce bubbles at the problem area if you can't hear it leaking.

    Because of the age of my car the air shock lines were badly rusted and they were leaking causing the pump to run all the time and finally the pump siezed up and quit working. I had a new set if air shocks installed with an air line running to under neath the license plate with an air valve at the end. When it shocks appear to look low I have use a tire guage to check the pressure and pump it up to the recomended pressure. The new shocks hold thier air very well.

Reset air shock


If you have seen lower back several times but the car raised by itself before, then you have to replace air spring. I replaced those with Arnott air spring.
If you had this problem for the first time, your air spring will be fine. If you have 4 corners air spring and the front one blows air in and out, your pump is okay.
Then I will first replace air suspension relay which costs $30. And you will have to check air hose connection. Finally you could try to replace air pump.

I have a 1993 continental When parked occasionaly the front air will raise to the top and stay yhere till I start the moter at which time it will revert back to normal. What is my problem?


This could be the result of one of your air springs having a problem. It's designed to automatically sense the load in the car and adjust accordingly. The most common problem is when an air spring fails to hold air. In your case, it may be the valve that releases air is sticking in the closed position. Either way, since the compressor is obviously working and the air springs are holding air, you may want to live with the problem until they fail to hold air at which time you will need to replace them. (It's advisable to replace the air springs in pairs). It's also possible when the time comes to replace the air ride system with conventional shocks.

There is a air line supposed to hook up to the oil filler cap and goes to where? And also to check the timing where do you hook up the timing light and do you have to plug any vaccum hoses, also what is...


There's a rubber hose that goes from the oil fill cap to either the air cleaner or to the air intake hose between the air cleaner and the throttle body. It's for the PCV system. There's also a small filter inside the air cleaner on some models, and another hose and PCV valve that goes from the valve cover to the intake manifold. There should be a emissions system sticker under the hood some where that shows all the lines, and lists the specs for spark plugs and ignition timing. You hook the timing light to the #1 spark plug wire, disconnect and plug the vacuum line to the distributor. Set timing to 10 degrees BTDC.

Try cleaning out your air filter. Blow through it with an air nozzle. If that does not work, then maybe try replacing the air filter.
