Question about 2000 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

2000 Expedition rear suspension randomly leaks and pumps up fine. Sometimes the compressor funs a lot. The bags have 150K on them, but don't look too bad, no metal showing.Leaks evenly. Can I replace the rear with spring coils, and will that stop the compressor from trying to fill the rear bags?

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.

What are the warning signs, if any, when the leveler (rear air suspension) is about to go out?


If a slow air leak has developed in either an air bag or in any of the tubing (there's a lot) or in the valve at the air pump, you will hear the air pump running more often.

Eventually, the pump will be unable to raise the car to the required height (working against the leak) within the time-out period (about a minute) and then it will give up, stop pumping, and a light on the dash will come on indicating an air suspension problem (or maybe on your relatively newer car, the digital dash may show an error message - I don't know).

I've had an '88, a '91, and a '94. Both the '91 and the '94 had air suspension faults at various times, and none of them were air bag leaks. I've had the valve at the pump stick and/or/leak on both cars, and the tubing spring a leak on one as well. Apparently the air bags are pretty well made and don't fail as often as the other components (in my experience).

I Have a 1999 Ford Expedition(Eddie Bauer) and I cannot find out why The Rear Suspension Air bags wont inflate. The bags don't have any Leaks, I'm assuming the compressor is working because the front of...


I believe it has to b reset / retrained by dealer or mechanic who has ability to read what the vehicle is or isn't doing. If you don't hear the compressor running constantly, you most likely don't have a leak, basically it'll run long enough to level up the vehicle and you shouldn't hear it again. try and dissconnect the battery, for a minute or so try it again.

My Rear suspension stop working on my 97 Expedition. The rear Bags are about 6 mos old. The compressor is working. It was working fine yesterday but this morning when I started up my truck and drove away...


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

'98 Expedition Rear suspension leaking


IFYOU FIND THE AIR BAGS ARE LEAKING (USUALLY IS THE PROBLEM) JUST REPLACE IT. LIFT UP THE REAR REMOVE THE TIRE ,DISCONNECT THE PLASTIC LINE THAT GOES TO THE AIR BAG (push the little grommet pull the plastic hose) DISCONNECT THE WIRE CONNECTOR, AND REMOVE THE CLIP AT THE TOP OF THE AIR BAG (JUST PULL IT) AND REMOVE THE AIR BAG (REVERSE TO INSTALL IT)
(YOU CAN REMOVE THE AIR BAG IN ABOUT 40 MINUTES) EACH SIDE.( on ebay you can find replacement to a regular shocks) or air bags

Try jacking up the vehicle and putting it on jack stands letting the suspension hang down. Disconnect the battery for a few minuts and reconnect it and it should inflate the airbags and level off the suspension.

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.
