You are in the Lincoln Navigator
What is this discussion about?
Lincoln Navigator, SUV
Aug 15, 2010 (6:59 am)
I am having problems with the rear of my 1998 Lincoln Navigator. I have taken it to a mechanic and the dealership and have heard two different things. At one place it was the compressor and suspension relay and at another I heard that it might be the motor (which was replaced) and the air bags. I did notice about 2 weeks ago a hissing noise coming from the rear of the truck. Now, the dealership is telling me that both airbags need to be replaced, at a cost of $800! Would it be better to convert from air suspension to coil shocks? Do I really need to replace the air bags? I just want to get it repaired because I want to get rid of the truck!

So yesterday I park my 2003 Navigator in Walmart parking lot. I come back out about an hour later. Start my truck and drive off to the gas station. While waiting in line to pay for my gas I look out the window of the gas station and realize the right front end of my SUV is tilted toward the floor. Does anyone know why only the passenger side of the front end will not rise and the issue isn't with both sides?

I have a 99 navigator went to start it the other day and compressor went on (but the rear is not lifting. i just joined on here and have seen the problem come up before. i'm going to try reseting by unhooking the battery for a bit. and the union fitting looks ok (but unsure). I can also hear an air leak I think that was not there before, need a hand here.

Do yourself a favor and get rid of the air suspension. Go to strutmasters and order the conversion kit. I did it on my 99 and its great. No more headaches/worries.

I have a 04 Navigator and when the temp dropped below 50 degress the other day the air bags didn' t raise the car. The compressor came on, but no lift. Once the car warmed after driving a few miles the air bags started rising. Has anyone had this problem? It has done this the last 3 cold mornings. I'm not sure how to fix it. I purchased a new compressor last year.

Just wondering if you found the problem. Had the same problem and after several different parts replaced the check suspension light won't go out.

I had a mechanic to look at it and he thinks the compressor is going bad. I replaced the compressor a 1.5yr ago, so I'm skeptical. I'm going to purchase another compressor and will post if it resolves the issue.

Let me know how you make out. I got offered $12,500 for a trade on a $23000 MKZ today because the light is still on in mine. These idiots at the Ford dealership can't find what the problem is and i have already spent over 2k on their training!! Now they tell me the part #'s might be wrong on the sensors that were replaced?? How can engineers build something and then have no idea how to fix it when it breaks?? My advice to you and anyone else who owns on of these would be be sell it.....sad but true.
