      Several possibilities; faulty suspension control relay, fault in the air suspension compressor, or a leak in any one of the air suspension components for the front - including the front struts / shock absorbers or O-rings / seals..

      Check these items as first steps; air pressure in all four tires, tire condition, tire balancing, miles / years since last shock absorber change (change all shocks if over 50-70k miles). Please post a reply with these results.

    Suspension Deflates when vehicle is turned off
    A few months ago I replaced my battery and ever since then the car will intermittently (about every other time I drive it) deflate and let all the air out of the air ride when the vehicle is turned off. I can increase the chances of it staying up if I put the car in ...

    I have a 2009 Lincoln TC with 235\60R\17 tires on it and would like to use a real tire for my spare.
    I have a 2009 Lincoln TC with 235\60R\17 tires on it and would like to use a real tire for my spare. A stock wheel is far to expensive for me so I was wondering what other wheels such as Mercury, Ford or any other company's for that matter might fit.

    Steering is hard almost as if no power steering
    Steering is hard all the time except when in certain turn situations. It has fluid but it doesn't seem as if the fluid is circulating.

      More than likely your power steering pump is weak. Replace pump and bleed out air.

    My rear air bags wont hold air after we replaced air conditioner. When key is turned on the compressor works.
    All four airbags air up, when the compressor turns off within a short time 1 or so ,the back is lowered ,and there is an air leak in the line somewhere up front by firewall. Would it be wise to convert to shocks and coils? As my car has 153,000 miles on it.

    I was told I need to have electronic suspension struts for the front right and left. I already have replaced the rear suspension struts. The scraping sound is getting louder and louder. Concerned about driving it around.

      Yes, possibly the suspension control relay, the air suspension compressor, or a leak in any one of the air suspension components.

    I have a 2005 Lincoln Navigator, while I am driving my ABS and my advance tracks lights comes on, and it stays on until
    I turned off the vehicle. Also my four wheel drive light flashes occasionally while these lights are on.

      It means that there is a fault with the abs and the diagnosis begins with a fault code check which needs to be done with a code reader that you do not have that is capable of reading Ford abs systems. Typically these code readers cost $150 and up. If you cannot identify the fault codes by number then the vehicle cannot be diagnosed or fixed any other way except changing parts blindly. All the lights are tied to the abs fault, even the 4WD lights. It might need a new wheel speed sensor, but which one? There are 3 or 4 of them and there are other components as well.

      First step - obtain a second or even third quote for the repairs. It pays to shop around - often the repair prices for same work will vary greatly from repair shop to repair shop.
      What exactly is the issue and the recommended repair? What are the specific parts needing to be replaced? Be sure to get a thorough repair estimate - in writing - to list all the repair parts and services needed.

      Go to another shop and get a second opinion. I cannot know what it is that you need because I cannot hear it. They may be truthful but you still have to see if another shop can do the smaller job that can get you out of trouble. It is clear that this shop is only gonna do the $1600 job so when a shop is un flexible like that that shop deserves to lose the job. Get it out of there.
