AIR RIDE SUSPENSION

1986 Lincoln Continental

Suspension problem
1986 Lincoln Continental V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 139000 miles

My 1986 Lincoln Continental's air bag suspension not inflating properly. I can hear the motor that inflates them running when the car starts but the air bags just don't inflate. I am wondering if they need to be replaced or if it's an issue with the mechanism that sends air to them. Thanks

Have both the relay in the trunk and the compressor/dryer checked by a reputable air suspension place. It may not be the air bags themselves. Usually its the compressor/dryer under the hood or the relay (where the suspension is switched off in the trunk). Both are much cheaper and quicker than the actual air bags.
