Question about 2004 Lincoln Town Car
Compressor for air ride is running way to much and is getting louder. Checked for leaks in bags couldn't find any, but did find a small leak where the hose connectes to compressor.

There is also a level hieght sensor on the rear axle. Sometimes it can get dislodged over nasty Boston Potholes. Or it can just plain be broken. It tells Height to computer that turns compressor on and off at appropriate height.

Check the induction coil of the rectifier. See if sufficient charge is being developed to start compressor. If this initial surge is being delivered via any capacitor, then have that checked too.Since the compressor is not starting finally check the compressor by giving it power directly from the battery, appropriately stepped down if necessary.........sodeep

This is a very common problem with all Lincolns. The air ride suspension are marketed as a luxury-comfort item but most do not know that they have a 100% failure rate and are designed to fail as shortly after the warranty expires as possible. The air bags that support the weight of the vehicle are not designed to withstand temperatures below 40 degrees or above 94 degrees and are very prone to dry rot. Once the bags start getting tiny cracks and leaks they start overworking the compressor. (Picture trying to blow up a balloon with holes in it.. you will try for as long as you can but will ultimately have to give up) These air ride systems can be very difficult to accurately diagnose the first time and consequently very expensive. Most people seem to be converting to a passive suspension system these days as the ride quality is too similiar to notice a difference and the reliability is paramount. http://www.strutmasters.com offers a high quality conversion kit that utilizes powder coated American steel coil springs that are actually designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle. http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-suspension-parts-s/1.htm there is a direct link to the Lincoln page. I hope this helps save some of you a little bit of grief and a lot of money in the long run!!
