Could be a blown fuse to the compressor, a hole in a bag, a bad ride height sensor, a hole in a line or fitting. These systems are nutorious for several different problems. Do you have a light on the dash that says "air suspension" in yellow?

I say give in to the air, take it off your car and let it retire.
Strutmasters.com has non air conversion kits for these vehicles and let me tell you what.. It saved me a lot of money. To fix my Lincoln it was going to cost me around $2500. I bought my kit from Strutmasters for a fraction of that cost and love my ride.
Check them out and save yourself time and money.

Can I safely remove the AIRmatic compressor if all four wheels are on the ground?


I suspect that it is not the compressor as it is filling the system
I would be checking for non return valves in the system that is allowing the pumped air back to the compressor and not storing in the air bags or accumulator tank
to answer your question , the car should not sink down as the non-return valves should hold it in place but if you are concerned jack up the car and place it on jack stands so that the weight of the car is not on the air bags

The back of the jeep is dropped to the floor and the air compressor runs for a short time only. the back does not lift


Sounds like one/both air bag are leaking, check around the rear tires, if the compressor continues to run with a bad air bag it will burn up the compressor and drain the battery. your truck has a self leveling system

The rear of my truck drops and the ride gets real bumpy. Also my stabilizer track light turned on saying it needs to be serviced


Hi, those have air bags (air ride) and one or both of the air bags has a hole in it and is leaking out,they have a pump that fills them up with air but when the bag goes bad the pump will fill it,then it leaks out, and back and forth. you just need to replace the faulty suspension air bag. or e-bay sells kits to eliminate the air ride and replace with springs. good luck. yz-maniac....

I am buying a volvo which originally had an airbag, but where the steering wheel was replaced with one which does not have an air bag. The car is a 1991 Volvo 740, and it doesn't have ABS so I was hoping...


It's unlawful to replace a deployed airbag with one not designed for the vehicle in some states. It's also unlawful to disable the airbag which by virtue of not replacing the airbag after it has been deployed. This car sounds like a headache waiting to happen. One has to wonder what kind of collision the car was involved in to make the previous airbag deploy. At the very least, verify the DMV and car safety laws where you live prior to making the purchase and if you're still intent on buying the car, you should get a CARFAX report first. I do wish you well and the best of luck. Greg

Back shocks on 97 TC are shot. Air system seems ok, but is it possible to just replace the shocks, or to replace them with spring assisted shocks?


The make a kit to replace the air bags, but it is real easy to replace the air bags and if you go on e0bay you can find both the kits and bags.

If you decide to replace the air bags all you have to do is remove the bottom shock bolt, raise up the body and remove a pin at the top of the air bag. it will drop right out. (be sure to turn off the switch in the trunk before starting. Some times you can replace just one. with the system on, reach under and feel the bags. IF it is hard it is OK, if it is soft that is the one you have to replace,

You are better off with the air bags working correctly.

Hope this helps.

Linoln mark viii suspension drop


Do a leak check on your system by using some dishwashing soap and water in a spray bottle. Soak all of your air suspension parts and look for bubbles. If no leaks are found, a diagnostic self test of the air suspension must be performed.
