Well that's cause the load levelers are too strong.. It uses a spring type mechanism to stablise.. Chances are the ones installed are a bit too powerful for your vehicle and was intended for a greater weight. Have tem removed and repplaced..

What is the self leveling system?


It raises and lowers your rear air shocks to keep the vehicle level depending on the load it has inside the cargo bay, or amount of passenger weight in the vehicle.

How do you check the transmission fluid in a 2006 VW Jetta? How oftain should the fluid b changed?



Fluid Level Check

Automatic Transaxle Differential Fluid
The manufacturer does not specify a maintenance interval for changing the differential oil/fluid. However, periodic inspection of the level of the fluid (and the fluid itself) is recommended. A high oil level indicates one of three conditions. First, the previous mechanic/owner may have accidentally overfilled the transaxle if the vehicle was not level. Secondly a high oil level (assuming the vehicle is level) can be caused by excessive condensation (water) in the differential. This may be a result of constant operation in wet areas, or high humidity. Moisture can condense inside of the transaxle in the same manner that a can of cold soda 'sweats' when removed from a refrigerator. Lastly, a high oil condition may indicate that the internal seals that separate the differential section from the torque converter/gearset are possibly faulty, and ATF has contaminated the differential oil.

NOTE Access to the fill/level plug is difficult with the vehicle on the ground. The vehicle must be level to ensure an accurate reading. Carefully raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands in order to access the fill/level plug. Make sure the vehicle is level before completely removing the plug.

  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle such that it is level.
  3. Place a suitable drain receptacle underneath the rear of the transaxle.
  4. Remove the filler plug on the side of the transaxle, near the halfshaft flange.
  5. Note the oil level; it should be even with the lower edge of the filler hole.
  6. If the oil level is low, add the proper type and viscosity as necessary to obtain the correct oil level.
  7. Install the filler plug, and tighten it securely.

Lift sensor for rear of 1988 Deville


To begin with, check the "ride level" fuse and make sure that the ride level compressor does work, and you should be able to hear that the ride level compressor is working when the ride level system is leveling the vehicle.

The ride level system uses an air compressor and either an air type of shocks or a type of air billow to raise and lower the vehicle, there is an adjustment to set the ride height and it is located under the vehicle and there is a control lever or rod that should be connected between the rear axle and a switch that is mounted on the body of the vehicle, and there will be an adjustment slot in the control lever between the switch and the body, and that is how you would adjust the ride level height, but be sure that the vehicle can not drop any further down if someone is under the vehicle trying to adjust the ride height.

However, you might find that the control lever to the ride level has fallen off from the switch on the body or it has come loose from the rear axle, and it is just hanging there not operating the switch on the body that controls the the ride level compressor, or there might be a blown out air shock or billow, or you might find that an air line from the compressor is leaking and the ride level compressor will just run continuously until it blows out the fuse, and if that is the case you might also find out that the air compressor has burned out from running continuously.

I hope that this information will help you to solve your ride level problem.

Service ride control


rear compressor use to come on often(heard "minor" left rear air leak after stopping and shutting car off). The compressor always came on at start up. after a well loaded family camping trip, the compreesor stopped comming on. when we arrived and I unloaded the cargo, the compressor came on and raised the rear end of the vehicle after unloading the "camping stuff" the compressor came on and re-leveled the car. After trip home and unloaded, the compressor no longer comes on, although car is level and rides nice, but when people used to get in the back seats, the compressor came on and slightly raised the vehicle. I found no blown fuses. would dealer codes say bad compreesor or is there a way to check the compressor? also if I replace the shocks with ones that do not require the compressor, will I be able to ever pull a heavely load car or tow anything without dragging/sagging? any information or insight would be much appreciated... thanks in advance

How to change the automatic transmission oil and filter. On 4 cylinder engine


Check fluid level every 12 months or 7500 miles, whichever comes first. Transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 100,000 miles. On THM 250C transmissions, intermediate (front) band requires adjustment every 60,000 miles, or as required.
1. With vehicle on level surface, apply parking brake and let engine run at curb idle. Move selector lever through all ranges, ending in "PARK". Remove dipstick and wipe clean, reinstall, then remove again and check fluid level mark on dipstick. Fluid level should check between "ADD 1 PT." and "FULL HOT" marks on dipstick.
RECOMMENDED FLUID Use only Dexron II or equivalent automatic transmission fluid.
CAUTION: If vehicle has been operated for an extended period of time at high speed, or in city traffic in hot weather, or if vehicle has been pulling a trailer, an accurate fluid level cannot be determined until fluid has cooled down (approximately 30 minutes after vehicle has been parked).
So let's get started... 1. With vehicle raised and drain pan placed under transmission, remove front and side transmission oil pan bolts. Loosen rear pan bolts approximately 4 turns each.
2. Carefully pry pan loose with screwdriver, allowing fluid to drain. Remove remaining bolts and oil pan with gasket. Remove screen/filter-to-valve body bolts and remove screen/filter with gasket.
3. Thoroughly clean pan and screen with solvent and dry with compressed air. Paper type filters should be replaced. Install new gasket or "O" rings, lubricated with clean oil, into screen/filter assembly.
4. Install screen/filter assembly to transmission. Use new pan gasket and install pan. Add proper amount of fluid to transmission through filler tube.
5. Start engine with shift selector lever in "PARK" position and with parking brake set. Check fluid level and add as required. CAUTION: DO NOT overfill.

Best of luck :)

The brakes are still bleeding off even after replacing the master cylinder


check wheel cyls, check entire plumbing system for fluid leaks, also are you absolutely sure you have all air removed, did you bench bleed Master Cylinder before you installed it on vehicle.. on some units you will need to jack up the rear of the vehicle to level the master cylinder to get all air out successfully, if the vehicle is on level ground and you can see the the front of the MC is elevated from the rear of the MC , level it by raising the rear axle until it is level... but again preform a thourough leak check of all components to determine the most probable cause...

No one makes air bags lifts for the Highlander 2wdr V6. How can you raise the rear to balance the load on the vehicle without changing the type of suspension. Which is a coil over-shock type? Bill Coker,...


Likely you can use monroe load leveler coil over shocks (check and see if they make them for yours) or you can replace stock rear springs with an aftermarket variable load spring.
