Question about 1986 Lincoln Continental
I just got a 96 Lincoln Continental... the REAR air seems to be fully inflated... jacked up rear end, and very ruff ride. I read that you have to shut the switch off in the trunk, and then manually bleed the air out to reset.... HOW do you manually bleed the air out of the system ???
Shut off pump switch located in drivers side panel door in trunk. Jack up car at frame and support with jack stands. This will make sure the car does not come down on you when you release the air.
Pop retaining off of solenoid valve located at top of airbag and turn valve to first stop till air starts releasing

If your back air springs are over inflated, it means your front springs are leaking. the air pump is working to keep up with the air loss in the front and over inflating the air springs in the back.
you need to replace the front air springs. if the front springs do not deflate when the car is parked then, the height sensor in the back is bad and needs to be replaced.

Just shut the switch off and jack up the rear end. Let it set for 1/2 hr to an hour let the car down and turn the switch back on and start the car and let the air bags re-inflate.
