Its most likly blown air lines located at the pump. The pump is located just above the passenger side rear suspension. The air struts have hard lines ran into a splitter. The pump has a vacuum line ran into a tee and then to the strut splitter, to the evap filter (trunk fitting under the car). These lines get brittle and crack. 3 dollars (air line) car ramps, soapy water and a 3/16 socket and wrench with extention will do the job.
Good luck.

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

No. This is basically telling you that the electronic portion of the suspension system has a fault. All the basic mechanical items will still work as normal. It is common on those truck to have the Auto Ride pump go bad for the air suspension in the rear.

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.

How to remove air suspension pump?

Replacing your Cadillac DeVille DTS electronic shocks with these reliable non-electronic shocks is a simple installation procedure. Cadillac air suspension fails because of rubber dry rotting, and then leaking. Your air suspension compressor will eventually fail because of this. Cadillac shocks in the front fail because of the seals in the Cadillac shock wearing down over time. They eventually leak, losing its dampening ability needed for a safe and smooth ride. Try cadillac dealership for a little more info.

Your load control sensor under the vehicle is broken or has become disconnected so it thinks you have a heavy load and is constantly running the compressor. you have get under vehicle and look for the sensor it is connected between the rear suspension and the body.

The suspension fault,normal height only pops up on the screen some times.what could this problem be please help with an answer. thank you

Need to get the vehicle scanned for fault codes.
The most common issue is the air pump/compressor for the electronic air suspension.
Relatively easy to replace, but you still need to get the vehicle scanned for fault codes. Once the fault has been repaired, again you will need to get the faults cleared.
No really a DIY repair im afraid.

Buick Park Avenue rear suspension pump noise

You may have to replace it but money wise it is a lot of times cheaper to convert over to standard shock/strut suspension than it is to buy the pump
