The air systems on these cars are very complex. But there are so many things that could go wrong with them. From busted air lines, to burnt out compressors, and tired out air bags. You can solve this issue by visiting Strutmasters.com and purchasing one of their awesome conversion kits.
This will take care of all of your air problems by eliminating them all together!! The price is great and the ride is even better.

Air ride suspention won'twork


If the car is riding lower than usual, making abnormal sounds, and its compressor won't start, it indicates the replacement of air suspension compressor.Accordingly, if the compressor has failed, there is usually an air leak somewhere in the air ride suspension that needs to be found and fixed before a new compressor is installed.

The air compressor is what provides the air suspension system with compressed air required for it to function. If you suspect that there is a problem, you should have proper vehicle suspension inspection by a professional technicians such as Eurobahn BMW MINI Mercedes-Benz Audi. They can determine if the vehicle needs an air suspension compressor replacement or repair.

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.

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...

What does it mean to service ride control?


When this occurs you have an problem with your ride control.You need to replace your front struts on your car.Also it can be that your vehicle may have an problem with your air shocks located in the rear of the vehicle.Sometimes,these vehicles are prone to have an slow leak out of the rear air shocks that as an result cause the service ride control warning to accumulate.

1996 seville rear air ride too high


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.

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.

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

2003 NAVIGATOR AIR RIDE STOPPED WORKING,PUMP CHECKED OK.


The navi has leveling sensors on both axles that are switches and are adjustable. Most likely these are out of calibration. DO NOT attempt to move or adjust these with the vehicle on jack stands. Vehicle could shift and fall resulting in serious injury.

EXPEDITION REAR AIR RIDE PROBLEM


do you have just rear air suspension? here's rear only. 4 wheel different. Deler an run a diagnostic test with WDS machine and get fault codes.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The air suspension system is designed to improve ride, handling and general vehicle performance for static, on-road and off-road driving conditions:
  • Ride is improved by using an air type spring (the soft ride is inherent).
  • Handling is improved by maintaining constant vehicle attitude.
The system consists of unique rear air springs, the air compressor, air lines, air spring solenoids, height sensor, air suspension control module, attachments and associated signals derived from both driver and road inputs. With these components and signals, the air suspension control module commands changes in vehicle height that are necessary for the load leveling features.
The load leveling feature rear air suspension (RAS) systems shall automatically make adjustments in vehicle height so that the vehicle is always at trim height and constant front-to-rear vehicle attitudes are maintained over the expected load range of the vehicle. Adjustments in height that are necessary to correct height differences between the vehicle's left and right sides for the RAS system shall be restricted to what can be reliably achieved with one air suspension height sensor.
The system uses one air suspension height sensor, a steering sensor, generic electronic module (GEM) and other vehicle sensors to measure driver and road inputs. The system changes vehicle height using an air compressor, two air lines and the use of air springs with air spring solenoids.
The air suspension system holds vehicle height when the rear hatch or any door is opened. The system stores rear vehicle height the moment any open door is detected. The system then maintains this height regardless of the addition or removal of a load. The system will return to its commanded height when all doors are closed or the vehicle speed exceeds 16 km/h (10 mph).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Air Suspension Height Sensor
One air suspension height sensor is mounted on the vehicle. The air suspension height sensor sends a voltage signal to the air suspension control module. The output ranges from approximately 4.75 volts at minimum height (when the vehicle is low or in full jounce), to 0.25 volts at maximum height (when the vehicle is high or in full rebound). The air suspension height sensor has a useable range of 80 mm (3.2 in) compared to total suspension travel of 200-250 mm (8 to 10 in) at the wheel. Therefore, the air suspension height sensor is mounted to the suspension at a point where full rear suspension travel at the wheel is relative to 80 mm (3.2 in) of travel at the air suspension height sensor. The air suspension height sensor is attached between the No. 5 frame crossmember (upper socket) and the panhard rod (lower socket).
When the air suspension height sensor indicates that the rear of the vehicle is lower than trim under normal driving conditions, the air compressor will turn on and pump compressed air to the air springs. When the sensor indicates that the rear of the vehicle is raised above trim under normal driving conditions, this will cause the air to be vented from the air springs to lower the vehicle back to its trim height level
