Sounds like you have a leak. Do a search for suspension components for that car and see what is available online. Also check the blogs. These will lead you to the most logical component to replace. Otherwise, not having ever owned or worked on one, I would pull the line off the compressor, seal it with a chargeable fitting on the end, then I would use external compressed air to try to fill it. I would also use this to try to find the leak. Otherwise, to raise the car enough to move it, jack the car and wedge 4X4 s into the suspension to allow it to be moved. Careful not to bend anything or get hurt.

SOURCE: My 98 Cadillac DeVille rear air suspension system

Common problem on all air suspension vehicles. It could be that there is a hairline crack in one of the shock bladders or that the pump is just too weak to pump up to it's intended pressure, a sensor or solenoid could also be bad.

Whenever I run into this problem I order a spring conversion kit for that vehicle, it is usually not worth spending $3000+ to repair the suspension.

www.Strutmasters.com sells the best kits, $327.00 for the rear. It also comes with a resistor so that your suspension light is not on.

SOURCE: rear air shocks 1998 lincoln continental deflate when parked

My Grandma marquis did the same thing, I thought that was normal, it slowly goes down when you shut it off and slowly goes up when you start it, It didn't hit the ground or anything, but then it finally did die altogether, years later, and then it hit the ground, so I got regular shocks back there and it rode fine, stayed level, it is now resting in the junkyard in a shallow unmarked grave. It was a nice car.

My 1998 lincoln mark 8 rear is too high, wont come back down. why is the rear too high?


There should be a level switch in the rear of the car.The connector may have come unplugged,or filled with water.or maybe the switcch is bad.Or,it could be as simple as a disonnected or broken link arm at the switch.

Front air suspension not working


Or for under $400 you can buy a coil spring conversion kit from a company like
Arnott. Look for coil spring conversion kit exclusively designed for the Lincoln Mark VIII. The kit converts the entire vehicle to a reliable coil spring/strut suspension system. Also look for a kit the required no special tools and comes with detailed installation instructions.

1997lincolnviiiair ride system in front end is loosing air


This is a common problem for all Lincolns. Since the front rises but can't hold the air, it's a good sign that you don't have any compressor problems. You probably hear the compressor constantly clicking on to try to keep the front end inflated.
The most common cause is a leak in the air spring. It is often referred to an "air bag" which is basically a cartridge that fills and releases air based on the load. The most common repair is to replace the air spring (it's advisable to replace 2 at a time). There is another solution to replace the air spring(s) with a conventional aftermarket shock type spring setup. It's a matter of personal preference. You would still get a nice ride from a conventional shock absorber setup. Although more expensive, I've always preferred to go with the air spring replacement to keep the classic "Lincoln" ride intact.

My 1997 mark viii is basicly dumped right now. I cant even drive it. First it started acting weird. The shocks would sometimes be jacked up and other times they would drop. It would alternate from front to...


Your best bet,on a vehicle over 8 years old, is not to keep repairing the air suspension system.
Replace it with a conventional non air shock, such as strutmasters or similar product

The air shock suspension will not raise the front of the car. There is a rumbling noise but it will not raise the car.


More then likely you have an air system hose that has dry rotted and developed a spit or an air bag that has done the same. Replace BOTH front air struts. Also you may want to turn off the air suspension before you burn up the compressor. You can get the air struts relatively cheaply online at strutmasters.

Air suspension in the rear will not hold air in Mark vll lincion


there are 2 ways of fixing that problem you can replace whats broken which is more than likely the air bags, which is expensive, or you can get an aftermarket set up with regular springs and do away with the air bag system completely it's not hard to convert it over just unplug the compressor jack up the car to lift the weight off of the suspension put a jack under the rear end housing and loosen the the shocks and lower the rearend housing remove the air bags put springs in their place jack up the rear end bolt shocks back up and your done.

Hi, i lift my lincoln mark viii '94 to change the breaks. and when a removed the jack lifter the suspension came down (back and front). what happenned??? what can i do? thanks.


If you failed to shut off the air suspension switch (located in the trunk) you may have blown an air line when you jacked the car up. All Lincolns equipped with air suspension should have it shut off whenever jacking up the car. You can try to turn the switch off and back on to see if the air springs refill but if not, trace the air lines from the compressor to both the front and rear to check for a blown line. If you don't detect a blown line, you may have damaged the air springs.

Linoln mark viii suspension drop


Do a leak check on your system by using some dishwashing soap and water in a spray bottle. Soak all of your air suspension parts and look for bubbles. If no leaks are found, a diagnostic self test of the air suspension must be performed.
