I have a 2001 S500. front suspension problem

Hi. If the pressure can build up but doesn't hold when the car is off and doesn't leak air, check your air relive valve for debris or electrical problem. Try switch it with other side. If the problem go with switched valve - replace if not you may have an electrical problem with it.

Dealer Ruined my Air Ride and wont admit it.

The Dealer did what ever they did for a reason

The repairs needed to be done & you authorize them

If you requested non ford oem parts,I would think the
dealer discussed the result with you

Obviously the dealer gave you the car back when they
knew it wasn't working correctly

I can not say I ever heard of that

I know they send you one your way &
don't fix much or charge a lot,but you
need them to resolve the issues at their

I barely know what your taking about

They disconnected some of the factory
air ride systems knowing it would do just
what it is doing or someone went home sick
& thing went from bad to give them the car
back & don't care

Front suspension goes down and does not come up mostly at night. Sometimes as i start the car in the morning it comes back up and stays like that all day. but not always

I tell everyone with any lincoln product,mostly 2005 & older

Navigators mostly ,that the Air Ride System is too difficult & expensive
to diagnose & keep repairing over & over & over,as in your case
for decades

Just install conventional shock/struts & get ride of the air

04 Lincoln Navigator Air suspension hose got caught up in a block of snow build up on passenger front side & became disconnected. Now the truck wont lift. The air hose is re-connected, compressor...

There are scanners which have a function to diagnose the air-ride system. It will take a more expensive scanner that has this function to do the job. Since some electrical shops charge by the hour, a scanner pin pointing the problem in minutes will save you money. Replacing the correct part will also save money instead of financing trial and error parts buying.

Some of the system is activated by the opening and closing of your doors. Parking slope also activates the system to level. The master dump valve for maintaining pressure is located around the bottom front of the front wheel well.

While the air system is expensive, overall replacing one component is a lesser expense. If you did not have air ride the vehicle would handle differently. You get what you pay for and maintenance is a cost other people do not pay with plain steel springs.

Take your vehicle to someone who has a compatible scanner to read your air ride.

Experienced problem after problem with my suspension on my 1990 LSC. Finally contacted "Strut Masters" online and replaced my entire system with a conversion for less than 400 and an afternoon. Installation was simple.
