Question about 2004 Lincoln Navigator

1 Answer

When i hit some uneven pavement, I can hear my back struts, kind of sounding like they need to be oiled. My check air suspension light came on, and stayed on for about an hour. It has not been on since. What should I do?

There is a couple of questions that actually need answers prior to a diagnosis such as one of them is do you ever turn your vehicle off and still here your compressor come on to prime your ar bags if so i would recomend replacment of the air bags on the rear your vehicle has shocks on the rear not struts the air suspension is a seperate unit on this vehicle it doesnt have air shocks but shocks and air bags over extending air bags can blow them and cause small leaks if you do not hear the compressor coming on check you rear sway bar you might need rear sway barr links or bushing which is not a huge repair expense and also sometime what you might think is comeing from the rear of your vehicle might actually be comeing from the front have your swaybar in the from checked as well

Could be the exhaust system hitting on something when the suspension moves. Inspect under the car and look for shiny spots that are making contact.

Uneven tire wear and struts problem

Sounds like you should have the alignment checked on an alignment machine on all 4 wheels.Once you get those readings and an expert alignment mechanic's estimate on repair,only then will you know the correct repairs needed.

Air suspetion inactive ,trainsmition in neutral both codes

Maintaining anything requires following the controls.
Before just replacing things like struts, you need to check the power, then the switch, then the control box, then the pump, and then finally the strut. You did it backwards.

And of course the transfer box would be in neutral while driving on dry pavement. You only engage the transfer box when you want 4WD, and if you do that on dry pavement, you will wear out the steering.

Sorry, but there is no such thing as a lemon car.

99 camery solara...ratlingnoise front left wheel,

Strut tops are a common failure on the 97-01 era Camry/Solaras.

They will make a hollow rattle sound whenever you hit bumps or uneven pavement.

They can be replaced one at a time, and do not require strut replacement if your old struts are still in good shape.
Replacement does require a strut compressor and an alignment afterwards, placing it outside the scope of most do-it-yourselfers.

It is labeled "suspension support" in the following diagram. The bearing below it is typically replaced at the same time.
