Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

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.

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.
