If they fill up when the car is running you're ok. If they stay low all the time, have them checked.

I added air shocks to my 1995 lincoln town car because the air suspension bags died. what pressure should they take and do they lose air so you have to add air?


The Stock Air Bags self Leveled, your new System should have come with PAperwork or is there a Air Nozzle that you have to fill? The Bags should come with a Pressure Window for a Firmer Ride or Softer Ride.

I have 97 mark viii n I c that everytime I get out the front end is always on the ground but it do rise up when I start it


Your mark viii has a air ride system. and as you drive, it has a pump under the hood. well over night it leaks down. then when you crank the engine .this pump will come on and air up the air ride system.kind of like a tire.But if just the front goes down ,Then you have a leak at the 2 front bags or lines, or connections. to find the leak try some soap in a spray bottle. after the bags are fully aired up and the engine off.some Lincolns leak worse the way they sit. it could leaking in a few places,that is what the soap is for.you can buy every part for that system from, Air Suspensions out of Orlando FLA 1-800-251-8993.plus diagrams

1997lincolnviiiair ride system in front end is loosing air


This is a common problem for all Lincolns. Since the front rises but can't hold the air, it's a good sign that you don't have any compressor problems. You probably hear the compressor constantly clicking on to try to keep the front end inflated.
The most common cause is a leak in the air spring. It is often referred to an "air bag" which is basically a cartridge that fills and releases air based on the load. The most common repair is to replace the air spring (it's advisable to replace 2 at a time). There is another solution to replace the air spring(s) with a conventional aftermarket shock type spring setup. It's a matter of personal preference. You would still get a nice ride from a conventional shock absorber setup. Although more expensive, I've always preferred to go with the air spring replacement to keep the classic "Lincoln" ride intact.

Went to work and truck was fine. Came out to go home and front of truck was almost sitting down on the tires. Air shocks won't inflate. What causes this and what is the cost to fix. 2006 Lincoln...


Your air bags are leaking and sounds like your air compressor doesn't work. Suspect new air bags and a new air compressor. And/Or ride height sensor located at the drivers side fender well above the controll arm.

I have a 1993 lincoln mark viii trying to manually add air to rear air bags i have installed the hose kit but they wont accept air how to fix


Don't bother. Check with srtutmasters or other alternatives. If the car was made in 93, all bags will be leaking and eventually the compressor cant keep up and fails. even your local lincoln dealer will not be able to diagnose the problems with their "computers." You can get lifetime struts and spring, in your case just springs for the rear, lincoln shocks still work. Put new struts and springs in the front. The only difference is the car will not lower itself at 60 mph or higher. the ride is the same.
