It likely has a slow leak in the suspension bags. Start the engine and let it idle. The compressor should come on and the car should level. If it does it again you might have to replace the rear struts. Expensive. about 1000. Or you can convert it to springs.

97 Merc Grand Marquis wont turn over after sitting for the winter. Battery is good. Ran great until sitting for 2 months.


The starter is probably just hung up, I would recommend that you gently tap on it with a rubber mallet, or the wooden end of a hammer.

1998 Lincoln Continental air ride problems I was told by a mechanic that by air ride computer was bad. I took it in and the mechanic put a diagnostic machine on the car and he overrode the air ride...


Yes its the air bag module that's bad because he over rode the system the bags are not getting any air from the pump and are slowly deflating.

My 1995 continental has severe ride problems bounces on every bump in the road front end sits low and rear seems normal


Sounds like the front "air ride suspension" is out.
That works off rubber bags built into the springs. If one or both has developed a leak/hile, it lets the front end (or rear or both) drop to ride on the bottom of the suspension.
Get the wallet out. It's expensive.
Sorry :-(
