I have a 1999 Buick century and their is a hissing noise coming from the rear pasanger side it sounds like a air leak from something but I'm stumped to what it could be. It does it all the time as long...


You can have an exhaust tailpipe leak or a muffler leak when the noise is farther to the rear of the car. You can have a leaking rear suspension bag if you have adjustable rear suspension.

For the suspension problem, you will be able to use a spray of soapy water to see if a line or suspension bag is leaking. Or some of the better scanners can be attached to your car and the suspension access plug will tell the condition of the system.

What's your problem?Toyota Prado Grande 2004. Hissing sound at the rear air suspension and it drops (the body). Does not happen all the time. Bounces a lot quite often noticibly on a hot day, does


If you have Air suspension this can happen. The noise you hear like from an engine is actually the airpump trying to keep up.

The hissing is air escaping and the bouncing is an indication that the suspension is not fully inflated.

There are individual bleed valves so the system can be leveled by itself. The valve on one suspension unit may be leaking. Sometimes soapy water sprayed while the part is working and again while shut off will show a leak.

Some Makes have a diagnostic plug which a scanner can read to find the problem. Often a car is jacked or lifted on a rack and someone did not turn off the Air system and knocked it out of alignment.

I hope my solution is helpful and enables you to diagnose the problem now.

I am the owner of a BMW X5 3.0i (2002. rear suspension does not go up while the front is ok please help


i am assuming this X5 has the self leveling rear suspension, but not the front, right? can you hear the pump in the rear coming on?

pump is locatred under the spare tire. remove the rear deck floot & spare tire and you will see the pump in the center.

check to see if any hoses are pinched first. have someone start the car while you are in the back to see if you can hear/feel the pump running. if the pump is running, then a hose is definately pinched or disconnected.

if the pump is not coming of, then check the wiring at the pump and the fuse. if power is present at the pump, then pump may have finally failed.
