HI. you may have a slow leak on one of the rear air lines that run to the bag. check the lines for leaks. if there are no leaks in the system, this will confirm a failed leveling system. the sensors will need to be replaced.

Air bag pump is running, new airbags . rear bags wont air up.


These Lincoln air suspensions are terrible. I have converted many over to coil springs at a fraction of the cost of replacing/repairing the bags. If the rear bags don't inflate, there is a broken air line to the bags or the bags are leaking

How do i replace the evo on my 2001 ford expedition?


I think you are a little confused. "EVO" stands for Electronic Variable Orifice. This has to do with your variable assist power steering - not your air suspension. What it sounds like you are describing by "doohicey" is a suspension height sensor. If the sensor is broken or damaged, it will cause the air suspension to drop down. Just replace the sensor and it will probably work again. Suspension height sensor failures are pretty common.

What are the possibilities of a rear suspension air bag expedition not working


For a 97 its a very good possibility. Possible reasons are: there is a hole in the air bag, corrosion around the ends where the metal and rubber meet causing air to escape. Also maybe the pump isn't working or something wrong with the wires going to the pump. If you are uncertain I would recommend taking it to a shop preferably Ford since they deal with these systems often.

One of your rear bags has a pinhole in the rubber,therefore the pump is trying to compensate for the needed air.A easy was to diagnose a air leak in the system is to spray down the bags with glass cleaner and it will show you where the leak is.Id suggest that you replace the defective bag rather than convert it to standard suspension.

sounds like possibly the bags are blown or either lines leaking if it's the bags blown out there are a couple choices replace the bags obviously or you can get an aftermarket kit to do away with the air ride suspension and put regular springs and shocks under it which is alot cheaper than new bags. but make sure you don't have a line that has ruptured

I had a 1999 Expedition. When you put the 4x4 on it raises the vehicle an extra inch or 2.
It may help to turn the 4x4 off. Two wheel drive is a lower air setting.
Your original pump may still be good. The problem can be in the front. The compressor is not filling the front suspension to the cutoff point. It will lift the rear after the front end is at running height. Since you lost the front end first, the remaining air bled out there and then the rear came down. Once you shut down the car the suspension was done, all the air was let go.
There are adjustment solenoids on the body but you need someone qualified to repair this.

Air ride suspension 1997 ford expedition


If the compressor is working and actually pumping out air, might need to check your lines dont have a leak by disconnecting them from the bags. If pressured air is making it to the end of the line, then bags may need to be inspected and one or both replaced. However it is more likely that the lines are leaking or the compressor pump needs a service. Just a new set of rings in the unit. Good luck, hope it helps.
