Solving Thousands Of Suspension Problems Since 1997!
Lincoln Continental Air Suspension Parts
This model Continental came with a front & rear air suspension, 4 wheel adjustable dampening system all wrapped into one. While the actual repairs aren't super complicated on this vehicle, finding someone that can actually diagnose the airbag system is very hard to find. What happens the majority of the time, is that they want to throw parts at the vehicle until they either luck-up and fix it....or you the customer runs out of money! We have found that only 1 in 20 mechanics are efficient on these air suspension systems. American Air Suspension can assist you or your mechanic in diagnosing the air system and even supply you with the best affordable replacement airbags, air suspension compressor, dryer and solenoids if you are set on keeping your Continental original with the air suspension.
Typical Problems with a
1995-1996 Lincoln Continental Air Suspension
#1) Air Suspension Compressor starts out pumping, then shuts off & check Suspension Light on Probably one of the biggest problems when the '95 and early '96 Continentals first came out is a problem with the wires breaking in the harness going to the front solenoids. The car may want to operate normally until a certain height, then all the sudden the check suspension light will come up on the display and the air suspension compressor will shut off. This break occurs approx. 3-6 inches away from the connector itself. If a scanner is connected and the codes are pulled, the code(s) will be somewhere like 1823 or so. Ford makes a nice kit to repair both sides, but it is expensive.
#2) In time, ANY Lincoln Continental airbag will need to be replaced. With the older style sealed for life type Lincoln airbags, after it was replaced, you can bet it was good to go for many years afterwards. Due to the design of the airbag assembly on this vehicle, if just 1 of the many seals aren't replaced before the replacement airbags are installed, all that money, time & effort will be wasted. That's right, by not replacing 1 or more of the seals, the leak may even be worse than it was with the old airbags! With all the professionals out there, why even bring this up? Because mechanics are on 100% commission.....and time is money. Most won't feel the need to spend a few minutes replacing these seals. Tired of buying Lincoln Continental air suspension parts?
