air suspension pump runs a lot on 1999 Lincoln Town Car

My town car's suspension system leveling pump has recently started running within minutes of starting the car and runs about every 10-15 minutes for about 2-3 minutes.

It sounds like you may have an air leak from the air suspension. A visual inspection will often reveal the fault - cracked air line or air spring. If not you may need to spray the components with soapy water to find the leak.

I had the same problem on my 1999 Town Car, it kept running until it eventually overheated and blew the 30A fuse. I ordered a conversion kit from and installed it. It only took an hour or so with simple tools. I looked at replacing the air shocks, but they were $500 per and will eventually leak again in the future so I decided to convert. Good Luck.

Sagging suspension can be a result of air suspension struts and/or drier leaking air. These type of air leaks can lead to failure of the air suspension compressor.
My air suspension is not working properly will it matter if I do not get it repaired. I was quoted $700 and it is out of my price range right now
