Question about 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII

1 Answer

Is there anyway to just take a air pump & blow up the Air Suspension Systems when it fails? I may get the conversion kit but I'm in school and money is VERY tight! Please let me know if I pump up the system just to git it back up for a few weeks? Thank you, Dwane

You could just find the pump, which is probably between the rear wheels somewhere. Run a wire from the fuse box on a switch and another wire to a ground on the car and pump the suspension up when it gets low. I did it on a 96 caddy and it was actually way more fun to drive after that. Good luck.

I have a 2006 lincoln navgator why in the front does it keep going down


The Navigator has an air ride (air bag) suspension system. It uses a compressor and air bags in the suspension to provide a smooth and level ride. These systems are fairly reliable, but can malfunction due to misuse or parts failure. A common problem with these is that you must turn off the air ride system before raising the vehicle on jacks or a lift. This is because the weight of the vehicle provides a feedback pressure to the compressor to allow it to determine proper level and shutoff point. If the vehicle's weight is removed from the suspension with the air ride on, the compressor can over-inflate the air bags and cause them to blow out and fail. Other things that can happen are leaking air hoses, o-rings, seals and such.

Can the front suspension problem be due to the compressor


If the rear suspension is not affected its probably a leak or a front height sensor.

Front air suspension not working


Or for under $400 you can buy a coil spring conversion kit from a company like
Arnott. Look for coil spring conversion kit exclusively designed for the Lincoln Mark VIII. The kit converts the entire vehicle to a reliable coil spring/strut suspension system. Also look for a kit the required no special tools and comes with detailed installation instructions.

AIR SUSPENSION NOT RISING


Under the hood there is an air compressor to fill the air bags on the suspension. With age the compressor draws excessive amps and blows the fuse. Check the fuse and see if it has popped. If so replace it. If the fuse is good ,locate the compressor and check the electrical plug to it to see if it has become corroded. If corroded pull the fuse and scrub the contacts with a brass brush untill clean. To keep it from corroding in the future apply some dieletric grease to the contacts and plug it back in. hope that helps, Rich.

AIR SUSPENSION PROBLEMS FOR 2000 LINCOLN TOWNCAR CARTIER


I have serviced these in the past and it will probably be a combination of things. I just a few weeks ago fixed a 1999 with the same problems. Generally from past repairs, the electric pump has been working overtime to compensate for leaking rear air shocks. The best solution is to replace them both, not a cheap repair, the pump around 275.00 and each shock arount 275.00.
Just with every thing over time things fail, the rear shocks develop leaks over time/weather cracks, they are easy to check, soapy water will identify this as the problem. If you can get under it enough to spray around the bottom of the shocks when they are inflated. These systems are computer controlled and if you have the proper scanner you can check the system out for eletrical problems easily. My past experiences with these suspensions as almost always the shocks and pump.
