Air leaking from bags - told it was $1000 to replace, lots of other problems other people have posted as well including: water on floorboard (rear passenger) when it rains, check engine light keeps coming on due to gas cap (even after having it replaced at the dealer), I take manifold leaking (we had the same problem with our 1996 town car), electrical issues - power windows and seats randomly work.

My car seems to be leaning more towards the right side. Just not sitting level, had a mechanic look at the sruts & he said that they're fine
@ 130k miles, every morning the driver side rear was sitting low. Starting car fixed it. 3k miles later, dash light "Check Air Suspension" would be on at start, until car was level. Leaky air bag. Lincoln estimate was $900 for repair, $700 for replace with springs. Caught it early, the compressor did not need replacing. Bought air bags & dryer rebuild kit on eBay. Works great. I recommend a new dryer, the rebuild kit takes too much time. Still need new shocks.

THe rear end is sagging I did the water and soap test I was able to find a really really small amount of bubbles , not sure if that is the problem , or the compressor . - note the air bags are both after market , and now one of them is only leaking with a tiny amount of bubbles . Thank you guys hope you could help

Air suspension light on, and rear end sags to the ground while driving or parked. Very bumpy and bouncy ride. Sometimes it resets after turning the car off and back on but it goes out at any time. Check engine soon light is also on. Had a computer hook up to the car and problem stated it was a spark plug or misfiring during first 1000rpms. Probably has nothing to do with the air suspension. Have not found a cheap fix. Lowest price to fix is $1800 for part so far.
