In the am my engine will crank but wont start until i pump the gas peddel 20 times then it starts, and will start everytime all day next morning wont star In the am its like it isnt getting gas??


Pumping the gas pedal on a fuel injected car doesn't really do anything.
However, cranking the engine for an extended period of time could "pump up" the fuel pressure.
You should have about 35psi in the fuel line when you first crank the engine. If the pressure is low, it could take 30-60 seconds to build up that pressure to get the engine to start. Min pressure is around 35-40psi. The pump in the tank could be leaking pressure back into the tank overnight, or the pump relay could be faulty.

My 2000 Expedition Eddie Bauer gets lower in the rear after the truck is parked and the engine is off. When I start the engine and all doors are closed it begins to level out in the rear. What is the...


This is normal operation for this vehicle, the air in the air ride suspension system is designed to do this. After the vehicle sits, the air ride suspension will slowly release the pressure in the system until the vehicle is started again, and the air ride will level itself out again.

Hope this helps...

How long should it take for the self leveling rear suspension in a 2005 GMC Envoy XL Denali Edition to almost go empty. If i let the car sit overnight most of the air is gone and the rear is low, however...


The air suspension system should stay up for several days without going completely down, which probably means that you have a small leak which is quite common even on relatively new air bags or struts.

A general rule of thumb is that if the compressor isn't kicking on several times during a drive then they are good to go. The air bags are a pain to change, so most people don't change them until they are really bad.

Back end sits very low


I bought an '02 Bravada a couple months ago. I was told that this is normal. Since it's an air ride suspension the air escapes when the vehicle is not in use like overnight. Then after starting up the air compressor will turn on and inflate the air ride suspension.

Cold start only. loud whirring noise for about 7 seconds then wind down of noise to quiet. someone thought of motor for rear suspension air shocks problem. ?


It probably IS the air shocks. Sounds like you have a leaky system. If they sit overnight and loose pressure, the first thing they do is pump air to level out the car. You'll need to get it up on a hoist and check the lines. No big deal. They are just plastic lines and sometimes break or split and have a loose connection.

Discovery rear air suspension sitting down overnight


My car did this. I could actually park and feel my car raise up or down. Looking at my car it was sitting completely crooked as if I had hydraulics. lol I have a 2001 Discovery II. When I had it fixed at the dealer it was the rear airbag which is part of the air ride suspansion. I hope this helps.
