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.

1993 Lincoln Mark VIII Problems
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.
A vacuum leak from the PCV grommet vacuum leak can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The molded rubber hose connections may crack and collapse, causing the vehicle to run roughly. A damaged PCV hose will require replacement.
Erratic engine coolant temperature or intermittent overheating can be caused by corrosion inside the water pump. The impeller may spin on the water pump shaft or the impeller may corrode. Either condition reduces coolant circulation resulting in engine overheating.
Corrosion can form at the grounding points near the battery. There may be electrical faults and the engine may crank but not start.

Bought my '95 Mark VIII with 40k miles on it in Jan. '05. I love the ride, but would NOT RECOMMEND it because of the VERY HIGH COST of repairing/replacing air ride, which this one didn't even get to 70,000 miles before breaking (& Linc. dealers will not work on suspension or older models, & honestly, they don't drive nearly as good without the air ride). I had it repaired first time & 13 months later air ride went out again. Eventually, converted to shocks and then had to have new control arms too. Rebuilt the total suspension front and back, chronic problems with headlights, sunroof doesn't work, many cracked hoses, alternator, many batteries, automatic antenna doesn't work. I've spent about $5000 to 6000 in repairs (actual costs). Upside is that it does have great power/pickup and the AC is in good condition & I don't mind driving it. As much as I want to buy another American made car, don't think I will after a T-Bird, 2 Mercury Cougars (head gaskets went out and these were bought brand new)and now this old Linc. But, I do have a soft-spot in my heart (or maybe it's really in my head), for the old ride. Spent so much on her, I may just keep for nostalgia cause they don't build 'em like this anymore. The Mark VIII has the same specs. as a Ford Cobra. Oops mine is a 95 not 93.
I love my Mark Vlll, but have spent a lot of money on repairs. Right now and for a long time I have replaced 4 batteries and 4 altinators in 5 years and it still won't start every time. Any suggestions?
