I'd have them checked first to determine if it is actually the shocks, or possibly just a loose or cracked line, which should be a pretty inexpensive fix. If it turns out to be shocks, weigh it out then.

SOURCE: service ride control on it sounds like air is

If it sounds like the air is leaking out of both rear shocks it is probably time for a new set of shocks. If yours are original from factory. They are most likely dry rotted and full of holes. If you continue to drive the car in this condition you can plan on replacing the air compressor too. The compressor isn't meant to run continuously and it will burn up while trying to keep up.

Why does my rear air suspension system come on nothing leaking but my 2002 Oldsmobile bravada will not go up


Bad pump or a leak. Pull the lines fro the rear air shocks, Fell for pressure build up in the line. Find the pump, and check pressure there also. No pressure at the pump, it's bad. Pressure at the pump, but not at the shocks, bad line. Pressure at the shock line, bad shocks.

Rear air shocks do not work


there can only be a couple things either the lines going to the shocks have a hole in them and air is leaking out before it can charge the shock or the shocks seals are bad and leaking out there also check the tip where you inflate maybe take the air valve out and see if thats stopping air from reaching the shock!

I am not getting any shock action on the rear of my 2000 Lesabre. The rear of the car gets unstable when hitting bumps; like driving a hardtail. The problem came on suddenly after not driving it for about...


Your Buick LeSabre may have air shocks on the rear. Check the shocks for leakage or stains from previous leaking. If the shocks are leaking you'll need to replace the set. Don't replace only one shock-replace them both.

What does the "leveling" light in the dash mean in my 2000 cadillac catera. why is it on and how do i fix it. put new rear shocks in it and now it stays on all the time.


What the leveling system is is basically a height sensor for the rear height, air shocks, an air compressor and air lines. What happens is the height sensor knows what is considered a normal ride height. When people or items are added at the rear seat or trunk the vehicle sits lower. The air compressor will turn on and attempt to pump up the air shocks to raise the height to normal again so the rear end doesn't bottom out.

What can happen is the compressor fails to turn on due to a blown fuse, faulty compressor or defective height sensor. If the compressor turns on the shocks might not be able to pump up due to a line leak or air shock leak.

If you are able to look at the lines or shocks you might find a problem. Otherwise going to your mechanic and have him/her inspect the system to see what the problem might be and then deside if you want to fix it or have them do the repair. Because the light turns on periodically and goes out I would suspect a leak somewhere.

Air shocks trouble shooting no air to shocks rear end saggs


first off! check the shocks seperately with a seperate line to each shock to insure the boots are not blown!! also check the o-rings or farrow beed's around the lines where to go into the shocks for leakage with some dish soap and a spray bottle if thr shocks seems to hold air when isolated from the system then you either have a broken line or the lines where they connect to the ir pump itself are leaking of one side of the air pump it leaking internally`

97 catera leveling light flashes all the time


The problem is a leaking air shock(s). My 1997 catera had this problem also. I drove the rear wheels up on a set of ramps and went underneath. There is a sensor located close to the rear axle's that moves up when the car is loaded in the rear. (luggage/person in the back seat). When the car senses the extra weight, a small compressor located up under the hood pumps air to the air shocks until the car is back level again. With the key turned on, and the engine off, You can actually move this sensor with your hand and after about 45 seconds, you will hear the small electric compressor come on and see the rear of the car rise. Even if the shock is leaking, the car will still rise but you can hear/feel the air leak on the rubber boot of the shock. The reason the light never stops flashing is because of the air leak the car never really reaches proper leveling. I know what your thinking, "I didn't have extra weight in the car"..doesn't matter car still levels itself from time to time without extra load in the rear. Possible road conditions etc. and also the fact your basically riding around with only one rear shock working like it should. hope this helps......dave

ONE REAR AIR SHOCK IS LEAKING IN MY 2002 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE


you could replace the one shock but do you know why it is leaking oil? Typically unless there was something traumatic to happen to one of the rear shocks, then if one is going you can almost be the other one will go soon. I ended up having too many problems with the air ride suspensions. If you haven't yet, look into conversion kits as something to consider for down the road if nothing else. www.strutmasters.com has a great kit that is made in America and comes with a lifetime warranty. They have a good reputation and track record and can help you save some money and find the permanent solution if anything else goes wrong.
