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 air ride suspension on my ford expedition 2001 and wonder if there's any way to manually air up the shocks to check for leaks .my ride along compressor is shot.


    They eventually wear out. But if you try to replace parts, it will not fix the ongoing problem. You really need to change it to coil suspension. The problem with air ride is the bags will eventually go bad and it cost more to replace them than air bags in the steering wheel. I was lucky. My Expedition had already been changed over

    My rear air sespension has gone bad on my 1998 navigator and I can not afford a new air sespension since they quoted me over $1900 to fix. Can I just put regular shocks on the rear to fix the horrible sag?


    Yes you can, But even better yet would be a set of air shocks on there. I had a 92 Grand Marquis that blew out the rear suspension, and I put reg shocks on there, worked great, looked normal, No problem. They wanted $2,000 to fix mine. I said later. But the air shocks, if you have a full load or a sagging problem, you can just get out the compressor and blow them up. Hope this helps.

    Discovery has started to drop on wheels at the back


    Hi,
    Well , Your rig has an air ride suspension. The fix may be simple. A loose air line. Expensive , The compressor, the air bags or control valve.
    There is available an after-market non air suspension kit.
    Sorry ---- other than the loose air lines it get's spendy. I do not know the prices.

    My air suspension will not air up


    your air pump has gone out. replace it and make sure none of your air springs are leaking since that could have been the cause for your pump to have gone out. constant running of the pump will over heat it and burn it out.

    99 model Expedition At first, the air bag was maximum high yesterday. so i disconnected the air supply hose from the bag to release all the air. after that, the air compressor doesn't work anymore... Now,...


    I would say that the leveling sensor is most likely bad. But it won't matter untill you figure out why the compressor isn't working. You need to pick up a service manuel at the parts store, if you don't want to buy one somtimes you can check one out at the library. I am guessing and thats all I'm doing is that the leveling sensor is in front of the compressor and is not giving information to the compressor. Good Luck.

    Check for pressure out of the air pump. If there, then the problem is a blown seal in the shock.
