Sounds like an very bad oil leak. If there is so much that you can't readily determine where it comes from, first you need to shampoo the engine. This is a procedure I do not recommend a "back yard" mechanic do. On a 04 Colorado there are a tremendous amount of electrical systems that can be destroyed if it is not done properly. I suggest getting a licensed garage to do the engine shampoo then run the vehicle checking for the leak. Most licensed garages will also determine where the leak is coming from at no extra charge (just ask). You do not have to let the garage fix the leak if you do not want them to but you should make it clear to them first that you do not want anything fixed just the leak found. You can then proceed from there. I think there are "over the counter" engine cleaners that can be purchased and used if you are not willing to pay for a garage to do this for you but again I caution you with these products and damaging electrical components, follow the directions precisely.

Somewhere, ahead of the compressor, are relays and a fuse or two. Your Lincoln dealer should be able to tell you where to look, if you do not wish to take it to them.
I think under the hood is the first place to look, as that circuit is requiring a lot of current.
You have a black plastic cover over a black plastic box with fuses and circuit breakers in it under the hood, and you might find the air ride system named in that box with a corresponding fuse.
God bless your efforts.

Depends on the problem. It could be coolant leaking into the engine oil, or a vent problem, or the engine may not be reaching normal operating temp and getting rid of the moisture inside the engine.

This same thing just happened to my 04 colorado. the problem is in the wiring harness or the resistor for the blower motor. I found my problem in the harness. Take the few screws out of the glove box hinge and the cover under the glove box and the motor will be exposed. disconnect the large white coupling and look to see if the pins or holes are black, like they had been burned. If they are, you may be able to clean them and put them back together. If they look normal, the small black box that is bolted to the plenum has gone bad, this is the resistor. The entire harness, with resistor can be purchased on
