Well, there has to be a leak somewhere. You've probably got a cracked hose somewhere. You'll just have to trace the hose all the way back to each of the shocks. It may be that the air bags in the shocks themselves are bad.

Good Luck

Air is on all the time


I assume you mean the air pump for the the rear air shocks. Somewhere in the airlines or fittings you'll find the leak.
Just follow from end to end. If need be, fix up a spray bottle of dishwashing liquid & water. Spray the air hose & fittings liberally, the detergent will produce bubbles at the problem area if you can't hear it leaking.

Range Rover l322 My front air supension is iactice/inflates then deflates whilst the back remains stable


They have problems with the air bag shocks leaking. The shocks typically have a large bladder bulit into them that will over time develop leaks causing the problem you describe. could be a damaged line to the shock but most often the shock. Start the car and run until it inflates. Stop the vehicle somewhere quiet then put your head by the top of the wheel that deflates. Listen and you should head an air leak. It usually requires replacement of the shock to fix.

Shocks are leaking


If you are describing the air suspension you need to use soapy water on the suspension bags and airlines to find the leak when they are trying to inflate. Air suspension parts can leak, some air solenoids or airlines can develop leaks.

For metal parts, there can be struts which are fluid filled and when they leak they must be replaced.

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 just bought a 2001 ford expidition. Bought it with air bags deflated already (rear suspension) motor kicks on but don't inflate would it just be easier to convert over to shocks/struts?


Well it really depends on the problem. It could be a leak in a line, or a weak pump, or one of the bags. I would want to find out where the leak is first.

Rear air shocks not inflating


the most common cause of this is the air suspension bags are leaking, this is esp true on cars with over 100,000 miles, look for creases that are cracked in the rubber of the air suspension bags, that is where they leak.

Can i manually inflate the air suspension on a 1995 lincoln?


Yes you can but you need to buy an airline kit . It comes with most manual air shock like for the old buicks etc. IT have a thin plastic air lines with nipplesand "O" ring seals that can be connect to your air shocks. There is also a T- fitting that is include that has an air chuck valve that can be manually inflated. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

I would like to bypass the air compressor and manual inflate the air ride so that it stays up.how do i do that Dennis


you would have to unplug compressor and remove airline and tie in a valve like one off of airshocks.
it is usually the air springs that rot and start leaking. so you will probably still leak down. you can replace with coil springs and do away with air ride your continental has airride front and rear?

this would do away with system all together

2001 Ford Expedition XLT EB rear air bag suspension does not inflat


Sounds like the seals may have failed in the air shocks themselves. I also think you may have a bleeder valve problem. Follow the lines back and check the bleeder valve to see if it is leaking when you have someone else turn the vehicle on.
