    thanks. I took both rear wheels off, can move right side up a little, but cannot move the left side at all. Is this shock the problem?

Have your shocks checked. air suspension provides ride height and shocks control bounce from road bumps

    when you bounce the back of the car up and down it should only go up and down 1 to 2 times then stop after you stop bouncing it. if it takes more than that you need to replace your shocks. hope this helps mike

Where is the location of the air suspension compressor pump for the front suspension of a 2006 Bentley continental flying spur? Front end fails to rise.


It is in engine compartment. Follow small air tubes. Listen for buzzing sound. Pump may be out or you have an air leak

It may be helpful for you to get some idea of the mechanism involved in operating the shock absorbers in your vehicle. Refer this information. It may then be a matter of finding the parts involved if replacement is required

Rear suspension is not lifting up and 'check ride control' lights up. While driving, the rear drags and I bounce around. How much will cost to fix this problem?


you may find that the little air pump for the suspension has siezed, I had the same problem with my car and found that the pumps are only lightly lubricated with with a grease type lubricant but the lubricant eventually dries and the piston wont slide up and down the bore as the piston has rubber "O" rings on it and wont slide in a dry bore.
The pump for mine was located under the right side front guard.
I ended up removing the rear air shocks and replaced them with normal air shocks with the tyre type valve that you pump up at the garage, never had any more trouble after that.
Hope this helps

When to change suspension springs chevrolet venture


if the vehicle is sagging or bottoming out on bumps and potholes it's time to replace springs. if vehicle bounces and has excessive sway then the shocks (struts) are bad.

My 1995 continental has severe ride problems bounces on every bump in the road front end sits low and rear seems normal


Sounds like the front "air ride suspension" is out.
That works off rubber bags built into the springs. If one or both has developed a leak/hile, it lets the front end (or rear or both) drop to ride on the bottom of the suspension.
Get the wallet out. It's expensive.
Sorry :-(

My air goes from coll to warm during the operation


okay first the heat may and most likely does have a blockage in the heater core and a good flush will take care of that.

no the air suspension sounds like it is working properly but the air bags are blown out in the back. this is a very comon problem with these trucks and do the all the time. not they are like 250 buck a piece and you need two. if that is okay no problem but if you don't want to pay over 500 in just parts to get your truck back up. there is a conversion kit sold by aftermarket parts store that is under 150 dollars and very easy to install for a shop and won't cost that mcuh. hope fully that helps. good luck man

98 mazda millenia shaking front end at 40 mph?? any clues??


try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.
