Why won't rear end raise up ?


I have a 2000 Lincoln Town car, had the same problem, it was the rear air suspension/shocks. They are air bags basically that levels your car and it cost about $300.00 for each at the dealer for parts and install but it also has its own motor that inflates and deflates these air bags and I also had to replace that and that cost over $400.00 installed at the dealer.

How can you tell your air compressor trunk switch is not working in a 97' lincoln town car


is the car sagging inthe rear?? bags deflated?? the switch shuts off the comressor so when we jack it up on the hoist it doesnt blow the bags(they are the rear shocks) try tripping the switch off and on to see if it will reset, check for a fuse if the bags have been leeking the compressor would have beeen running for a long time (while driving) and may also have burnt out . there is also a ride height switch under car(senses load to level car if trunk filled with stuff) that may have bent or broken... pop switch out and jump across contacts (trunk switch) if comperssor good it should inflate bags , test light to
confirm power to switch (blown fuse)
good places to start auto wreckers for parts if needed

I have a 1994 lincoln mark viii. the front air bags keep deflating and sometimes stay up. every now and then you can hear the pump and it makes weird noises and will not pump at all. its like i am driving...


Unfortunately, it sounds like the air compressor for your air ride system is not working. But before you replace make sure that the height sensors haven't gone out which would bleed deflate the bags. SunCore Industries has about the best prices for the air compressor, dryer and air struts and bags.

Changing them is no picnic, but there is plenty of information at SunCore on step by step instructions to do it.

I have a 96 Mark VIII and have had to replace the rear bags and two height sensors and the air compressor so far, but when they work as designed they are a very smooth ride. A friend went with the replacement non-air ride and there is a big difference in how it rides.

Air bags deflate overnight , but will pump up in the morning


Your vehicle has a leak some place in the air ride suspension system. it could be as simple as a defective o-ring or as expensive as a leaking shock. These vehicles are known for their nightmare diagnostics in finding and repairing leaks.

I just purchased a 1997 lincoln continental and the rear suspension deflates at night but when it is started in the morning,it reflates. Is this normal?


it should deflates only at trim height and shld stay at that level considering that there is no leak on the rear air suspension. Most probably leaking rear air suspension is the problem. The system works up to 45 minutes only after ignition off and will maintain the trim height

2006 Lincoln Town car rear suspension problem


The compressor will only inflate once or twice and only within a half hour of the ignition being turned off. If the bags deflate over night there is a leak in the bag and will probably need to be replaced. If you get under the car and take a look at them you will likely see deep cracks in them, specifically around where they fold.

1995 Lincoln Town Car


Any knowlegable mechanic knows about these air rides and if the car had to be on a lift and they didnt turn the air ride off will blow the air bags---In the trunk look to the right side and theres a switch to turn the air ride off/on.make sure its on.
