I HAVE A 98 CONTINENTAL AND I CAN HEAR AIR LEAKING OUT OF THE REAR PASSENGER AIR SYSTEM SOME WERE. HTE AIR BAG STILL INFLATS JUST DEFLATES REAL FAST AND IS MAKING MY COMPRESSER WORK OVER TIME. IS THIS A SIMPLE FIX OR SOMETHING MAJOR?
The back of my car is so low it drag when I pull in to drive and it bounce up and down I think I need air struts
left rear of car sags until engine is started and then rises to acceptable level above tire. When the engine is turned off it deflates again.
air pump wont come on
fear of vehicle dropped compressor runs 5 seconds shuts off bags do not leak
Rear passenger side leaks slowly an sometimes it will stay up is it a hose leak or the air shock bag it keeps my air pump working alot
rear passenger side suspension doesn't get suspended when car is started; I own a leaning lincoln.
I heard a popping noise when I pulled in at night. In the am, the rear end was sagging.
Air line split from tip of the drier
Air is leaking out of left rear. Back of car sets low because of leak
I need front struts really bad but I can't find the parts anywhere, I've called every place in my city.
Rear end is on the ground!
Houses leaking on compressor
