If the air lines are still intact then the O-rings in the cylinder are toast, only thing to do is replace them.

Our air suspension on our 2007 Mercedes r350 have stopped lifting


Your air pump or air shocks may have quit working. Mine would run but the shocks had an air leak. I had to get new air shocks and yes the air pump was shot so I replaced the air shocks and installed an air line below the license plate. I pump them up with my air compressor about every three months. The pump was too expensive for me.

My 05 caddie devill rear shock is frozen in the up position


This are most likely air shocks. Is it a DTS? Those have air. They have a level indicator that tells the compressor where to stop at proper height. I would assume this is broken or sticking. If it is a regular shock, it will need replacing.

1989 deville load level compressor runs for 3 seconds then stops after turning ignition switch on


Check and make sure that the level control lever that goes to your shocks was reconnected. Might have been overlooked....Hope this helps.

Range Rover l322 My front air supension is iactice/inflates then deflates whilst the back remains stable


They have problems with the air bag shocks leaking. The shocks typically have a large bladder bulit into them that will over time develop leaks causing the problem you describe. could be a damaged line to the shock but most often the shock. Start the car and run until it inflates. Stop the vehicle somewhere quiet then put your head by the top of the wheel that deflates. Listen and you should head an air leak. It usually requires replacement of the shock to fix.

Rear air shocks do not work


there can only be a couple things either the lines going to the shocks have a hole in them and air is leaking out before it can charge the shock or the shocks seals are bad and leaking out there also check the tip where you inflate maybe take the air valve out and see if thats stopping air from reaching the shock!

Load levelers must be leaking, the air pump is running


No, you may want to replace the shocks though. You can leave the leveler disconnected and replace your shocks with regular shocks.

My shocks are overacting. 2000 Buick LeSabre


Yes, it is the sensor that measures the height of the car and tells the system to stop pumping air.

I quick fix - just pull the fuse on the air pump if you want to stop it for now.

THe sensor may just have mud on it. Look near the rear wheel, driver's side, you may have to remove the tire to see the sensor.

2005 chevrolet venture load levelers not working


had the same problem with my ford a few years back, found that the rubber seal on the piston in the compressor had run dry and it was too hard for the compressor to push the piston up and down the bore which cut the power to the compressor and you had to stop the car turn it off for a couple of minutes and restart it and the compressor would pump air for another couple of minutes and stop again.
I solved the problem by replacing the shocks with a pair of pump up shocks that have a valve like a tyre valve and you pump them up at the service station
hope this helps

97 catera leveling light flashes all the time


The problem is a leaking air shock(s). My 1997 catera had this problem also. I drove the rear wheels up on a set of ramps and went underneath. There is a sensor located close to the rear axle's that moves up when the car is loaded in the rear. (luggage/person in the back seat). When the car senses the extra weight, a small compressor located up under the hood pumps air to the air shocks until the car is back level again. With the key turned on, and the engine off, You can actually move this sensor with your hand and after about 45 seconds, you will hear the small electric compressor come on and see the rear of the car rise. Even if the shock is leaking, the car will still rise but you can hear/feel the air leak on the rubber boot of the shock. The reason the light never stops flashing is because of the air leak the car never really reaches proper leveling. I know what your thinking, "I didn't have extra weight in the car"..doesn't matter car still levels itself from time to time without extra load in the rear. Possible road conditions etc. and also the fact your basically riding around with only one rear shock working like it should. hope this helps......dave
