Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

99 model Expedition At first, the air bag was maximum high yesterday. so i disconnected the air supply hose from the bag to release all the air. after that, the air compressor doesn't work anymore... Now, the body is at the lowest position and it feels like there's no suspension at all when i drove the van. Some say air suspension bag is gone, some say G-sencer or level sencer is gone, some say compressor is gone... I've got so confused with this situation. Local auto part dealer advised to replace the whole parts and which cost me around $1,200. please someone help me!

I would say that the leveling sensor is most likely bad. But it won't matter untill you figure out why the compressor isn't working. You need to pick up a service manuel at the parts store, if you don't want to buy one somtimes you can check one out at the library. I am guessing and thats all I'm doing is that the leveling sensor is in front of the compressor and is not giving information to the compressor. Good Luck.

How to remove the heater core on 94 mercury cougar

Removing the Old Core
  • Disconnect the Mercury Cougar's negative battery cable. Remove the center console from the interior. Disarm the car's air bag system and remove the bag's diagnostic monitor and bracket.

  • Take the heater outlet floor duct out of the car. Remove the screw holding the air transfer duct and push it into the outlet duct. Unscrew the screws retaining the outlet duct to the heater core cover and release the retaining tabs on each side to remove the duct.

  • Raise and support the Mercury Cougar, using multiple jackstands. Drain the engine coolant by removing the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. Replace the drain plug after all the liquid flows into a clean container and disconnect the heater hoses from the core

  • Withdraw the black vacuum supply hose from the vacuum source (you can now lower the vehicle). Disconnect the same hose from the air conditioner's vacuum reservoir tank.

  • Detach the heater core cover that holds the core by releasing the retaining tabs and removing the clips. Remove the dash panel seal, vacuum hose and heater core bracket from the cover.

Rear Air Suspension won't air up

take the sensor arm loose and manually operate it, when it is up, it thinks the suspension is low. Spray the bags and hoses with soapy water to find any leaks, dawn dish detergent works well. repair any leaks. If no leaks manifest, take a hose loose and see if you are actually getting air pressure from the air pump. Just because it is running, doesn't mean it is supplying pressure.

99 ford expedition level ride won't let air to rear air bags past solenoid mounted mid frame.

The better scanners can hook up to a connector port and diagnose the air lift system. This saves diagnostic time and the expense of replacing good parts. The trigger for your air ride system is probably one that you would not imagine. The trunk lid switches and the door jam switches tell the car that it needs to lower or pump up the system. The idea is that you want the car lower to load passengers and to lift things into and out of the trunk.

When these trigger signals reach the solenoids it is their job to add or release air. At least your pump is working. The diagnostic scanner will tell whether the solenoid is bad or a signal is missing to the solenoids. There is a master dump valve in front of the drivers wheel well to lower all ends at once.

Where do I adjust the rpm on my 1991 dodge caravan?

you can not manualy set the rpm on your dodge caravan, it is set by your computer and your idle air control valve, if you are having problems with your idle being to high or low you may need to replace your idle air control valve, go to your local auto zone or auto parts store and get a new one, they are pretty easy to replace,just a couple of screws and a electric connection plug, the auto store should be able to give you the location of the part on your vehicle of where it is located.

Air bag code 32

If I'm not mistaken I think it is a shorted or open circuit on one of the sensors. Model and year often helps to isolate the symtom and diagnostics. You will have a 99 percent chance of having a defective clock spring with a code 32 (B1932) but if you want to spend some more money on the diagnostic equipment I can post the complete diagnostic routine.

Possible Causes: Driver air bag high resistance could be caused by:
- a poor connection or corrosion in the driver air bag module circuits or the air bag sliding contact.
- an open circuit or high resistance in the air bag sliding contact windings.
- an open circuit or high resistance in the wiring harness.
- an open circuit or high resistance in the driver air bag module.

Flash code 32 which commonly calls for replacement of the clockspring (air bag contact assembly) under the steering wheel.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

2001 Ford expedition A.C. work for the rear of the car but not the front, sometimes air blows out but as I accelerate the air stops blowing as I remove my foot from the accelerator it continues blowing,...

This sounds like a vacuum problem. Check your vacuum hoses and connections as they relate to the HVAC system. There is a good chance that you have a cracked, broken, or disconnected hose, or a hose that collapses.

I have a 99 ford expedition i replaced the air compressor cause the front air shocks were bad and ruined the compressor. and teh rear air bags went flat now that the new compressor is in the rear wont air...

I have a 2001 Expedition, I don't have air bags in the front, the compressor don't work the air shocks. You have rear leveling. When they replaced the (compressor) did they turn the leveling switch back on. you may have air shocks connected to the compressor. Did the rear go down right after or over a couple of days. If the switch is on, turn it off and jack the rear up quiet a bit, make sure both side are quiet equal with each other, like it would be if it where raised by the air bags. Turn your level switch back on with it jacked up or sitting on stands. It may have went down so much that the compressor can't raise them back up.

My 2001 Ford Expedition looses air in the rear air bags after i cut it off. I don't hear any air leaks or anything! What can be the problem?

the air bags release air after it sits. The rear raises back up after starting engine, if you add weight, it raises up even more to compensate for level suspension. It should be fine unless it's sitting almost on thr ground, but it does release air and sit lower.
