I'd have them checked first to determine if it is actually the shocks, or possibly just a loose or cracked line, which should be a pretty inexpensive fix. If it turns out to be shocks, weigh it out then.

When i hit some uneven pavement, I can hear my back struts, kind of sounding like they need to be oiled. My check air suspension light came on, and stayed on for about an hour. It has not been on since. ...


there is a couple of questions that actually need answers prior to a diagnosis such as one of them is do you ever turn your vehicle off and still here your compressor come on to prime your ar bags if so i would recomend replacment of the air bags on the rear your vehicle has shocks on the rear not struts the air suspension is a seperate unit on this vehicle it doesnt have air shocks but shocks and air bags over extending air bags can blow them and cause small leaks if you do not hear the compressor coming on check you rear sway bar you might need rear sway barr links or bushing which is not a huge repair expense and also sometime what you might think is comeing from the rear of your vehicle might actually be comeing from the front have your swaybar in the from checked as well

Own a 97 Continental. Started car and a hissing


Well, sounds like you have a leak in your system. You can spend alot of time looking for the leak and replacing a small item. Or you can convert from air shocks over to regular shocks. Your choice. I can tell you from experince that it takes a while to find one small leak.

My right rear suspension is flat on my 2000 Buick LeSabre Custom. I can hear the air compressor working. On that one side, it rides like a "lowrider." Could I need new shocks.


Hello. A couple things may have happened.1, one of the rear air shocks could have blown out, or 2, you may have a air line leaking or broke. We are here to help you get your vehicle diag and repaired. Craig

1998 caddy catera rides really hard levellig light fashing on dash can hear a hissing sound from under the car is there a compressor [air] for the shocks any help great


Yes there is a compressor for the level ride.If the light is on or flashing it means there is a diagnostic code or codes in the system.But if you are hearing a hissing noise then look under the vehicle and locate the air leak.You probably have a line that rubbed through somewhere.You might be able to get a repair kit to repair the leak at a auto part store.Hope this helps.Good luck.

1998 caddy catera levelling light flashes on dash car rides hard [real hard] cab hear slight hissing sound from under car is there a compressor [air] for the shocks any help appreciated


Yes there is a air compressor follow the plastic tubes from the shocks to locate it also make sure your leveling sensor on your rear axle is not damaged if it is ok then you will have to have the system diagnoised to find out what is wrong.If it is just a air leak it should be rather simple to repair with pieces from your local parts store.

97 catera leveling light flashes all the time


The problem is a leaking air shock(s). My 1997 catera had this problem also. I drove the rear wheels up on a set of ramps and went underneath. There is a sensor located close to the rear axle's that moves up when the car is loaded in the rear. (luggage/person in the back seat). When the car senses the extra weight, a small compressor located up under the hood pumps air to the air shocks until the car is back level again. With the key turned on, and the engine off, You can actually move this sensor with your hand and after about 45 seconds, you will hear the small electric compressor come on and see the rear of the car rise. Even if the shock is leaking, the car will still rise but you can hear/feel the air leak on the rubber boot of the shock. The reason the light never stops flashing is because of the air leak the car never really reaches proper leveling. I know what your thinking, "I didn't have extra weight in the car"..doesn't matter car still levels itself from time to time without extra load in the rear. Possible road conditions etc. and also the fact your basically riding around with only one rear shock working like it should. hope this helps......dave
