asked by on

My car has 101000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

If you have air suspension on your 2002 Grand Marquis, the issue might be mechanical as opposed to a sensor. To know for sure, you should have a professional mobile mechanic come to your home and complete a car is hard to steer inspection so they can visually inspect and test drive your Mercury to determine where the problem exists and recommend the right repairs.
