Suspension problem
1998 Lincoln Continental V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 161000 miles

Right Rear Air Suspension will bleed off after sitting a short period of time. Will pump back up when I start the car but the more people I put in the car the more the pump continues to work.

What part will fix this problem and what will it take to install.

thanks,

Bob Schroeder

Hard to say exactly what part will fix it. It could be a bad air bag, check valve, leak in the supply line or a bad compresssor. Those vehicles are famous for being difficult to find the leaks in, and it can get quite expensive to be honest, (bags are a few hundred dollars apiece). I have converted many of them over to a coil spring rear suspension and not had any complaints about ride quality. Strutmasters makes a nice kit that includes instructions to keep the suspension warning light from coming on
