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.

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.
Thanks. The bags were leaking I had them both replaced for $572 parts and labor at a loacl Goodyear store.
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.
