MY REAR SUSPENSION IS LEAKING OFF AND LOWERING ABOUT 2 OR 3 HOURS AFTER BEING SHUT OFF. WHILE RUNNING IT PUMPS UP AN D STAYS UP. IS THERE A CHECK VALVE OR SMETHING THAT'S CAUSING IT TO LOWER.
Do you
have the same problem?

No

Yes but is integral with pump on left rear frame. Try a salvage yard. Also maybe one of the shocks see if you can hear leaking

Trust me - due to the age of this car don't even waste
your time trying to fix the air suspension system. If you plan on keeping the car for a few more years do - or
have a conversion done (from air bags to springs).
In addition once you do a conversion have the rear shocks
replaced. I did the spring conversion myself and had Sears
Automotive replace the rear shocks. Do a google search
on Suncore Industries they sell conversion kits.

Note: my lincoln TC rides just as nice w/o this poorly
designed $$ making (for Ford) air suspension system

good luck
