Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Can you hear the pump kick in when you put weight in the back and the car is running? The way it works is there is a level sensor that mounts between the body of the car and the rear axle. When weight is added in the rear the compressor will add air until the vehicle is level. When weight is taken out of the car which could be the rear passengers getting out of the car the vehicle is now higher and the pump will release air to lower the shocks back to a level height. This is why youare hearing that sound. The pump will let air out of the system even when the engine is off to maintain a level ride. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.
