I hav a 1991 lincoln continental. I want to know how to adjust the air ride. tires were changed without turning off the air ride now they won't pump up unless I lift on side of car. But they will not stay up.

first, switch is turned off to PREVENT damage to air strut(s). if no damage, then turn the switch (air ride) off, disconnect neg - wire on the battery, wait awhile (have a coffee, etc.), reconnect battery, turn ignition on (w/engine running), turn air ride switch on...
air system should correct itself (best if on a hill, front facing uphill)...
NOTE: you may have to start engine 2-3 times per cycle to get proper height...
i own a "88 continental signature series.

Can the air ride suspension for a 1994 Continental be replaced with a Air Suspension Conversion Kit for a Ford Taurus?

End all you'r airbag troubles call STRUT MASTERS and get air bag conversion. It costs less than one new air bag and labor. You get 4 new springs 4 struts and instructions .If you are into you'r own repairs it is not hard to install. The people at strut masters are very helpful. They can supply air bag repacement parts also at good prices.

That is soooo true! I tried strutmasters as well and I am glad I dont have to deal with all that airbag garbage anymore. A buddy of mine installed mine since he knows more about cars than I do, but he said it was pretty simple just like the site said. So I strongly, strongly recommend it!

Same thing happened to me. I called the dealer. They say get in car. Make sure all doors and trunk hood are closed. Turn air susp. switch on. Turn ignition to on but dont start. at same time push gas pedle to floor and hold it. system will balance out and should return to normal.
