air ride system

I am Having a problem with the air ride system on a 1994 lincoln mark 8. when starting the vehicle the system will not pump up with manual assistance. onc eits up it will say that way for anywhere from 1 hour to days on end. I do hear air leaking from the right front cylinder. if i hit a large bump sometimes the sustem will deflat. i suspect i need to replace the left frony cylinder, just wondering if anyone has had this problem

Those systems were DESIGNED with problems! Be sitting down when they give you the estimate to repair.

My $.02 worth.

Agreed. This system makes this car a viscious money pit. There are aftermarket companies that have the air struts and parts though.

My coworker had a 1987 Continental which had an air suspension problem. He dumped it last year and hasn't regretted doing so since.
