The compressor is located in a compartment in the left front wheel hub. To access it you have to remove the air cleaner and the washer fluid reservior.

the commpressor is located under the air filter on left front side. Just turn the suspension switch in the trunk off

theres a reset button in your trunk. try that.

If the compressor has failed internally there is really nothing a backyard mechanic can do to repair it except replacement. But leaking fittings, or a bad clutch pulley can be easily done. You will need to find out which problem you have and go from there.

The Mark 8 does not have a check-valve in the air suspension system. Each air spring has a solenoid valve, which controls fill and vent of the spring. There is a fifth in the suspension compressor itself, which controls venting the system. I discovered that the seat for vent valve was corroded in my compressor, which would then leak when the system was trying to fill. This resulted in the compressor running, but the car lowering. I was able to clean the seat up for a temporary repair, but ultimately replaced the compressor.

I replaced the air suspension on my 1993 town car with one of Strutmasters air suspension conversion kits. My baby rides good again and they have a lifetime warranty. Hard to go wrong.

It depends on why it failed. It should tell you right on your suspension check sheet. If your suspension is failing it is a numerous amount of components that are involved. The compressor could be shot, the air bags could be leaking, your solenoids could need replacing, the air lines could have leaks or holes in them, the dryer could need replacing, your relay could have issues. There are so many things that could go wrong with this and the cost to replace these items can be costly. edit: these are all for electronic/hydraulic controlled suspension systems, these are only on high end cars. On most cars, a failed suspension check would most commonly be caused by failing shock absorbers or ball joints. Though other parts also will fail, it is much less common they do.

Open the trunk and switch the suspension to off position. The car will sink down. Drive slowly to repair shop. This is a costly repair $1600 for two.

Air compressor??? Do you mean Air Conditioner Compressor? This service is best left to a professional who has the proper equipment, and skill to perform this repair.

1). Identify the failed connection, component, or module. 2). Repair or replace it.

Yes!! Aftermarket conversion kits for the older cars with air ride suspensions have become a hot item in recent years because the kits provide a repair solution for vehicles that might otherwise be too expensive to fix. For example, a set of four new OEM air struts and a compressor for a 10-year-old 1994 Lincoln Continental retail for around $3,500. Add in the installation labor, and it adds up to a lot of money to spend on a car that is worth roughly $2,500. The same car could be converted to a regular coil spring suspension for around $500 to $600 in parts, and it would probably be a lifetime repair (no future air leaks, compressor failures or electronic glitches to worry about.) Here is a link to a Monroe kit.

You can repair this system or what I suggest is you convert it to a system with springs and shocks. The link on the left below will sell you repair parts or a conversion kit. Go with the conversion and rid yourself of the problems associated with air ride.

I think they have air ride shocks in the rear not the whole suspension.

that depends on what is wrong have you checked the compressor?
