1999 Lincoln Continental Problems
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.
In high dust areas, problems with the EGR system are common. The filter for the EGR solenoid may plug and cause the EGR to activate when it should not; this can cause the engine to stall. The dirty filter should be replaced to correct this concern.
1999 Lincoln Continental Questions

I have had the "check ride control" light checked out at auto shop and confirmed both rear air bags are leaking and need replacement. Special tools required?
