Q: Car is too low

asked by on

The car is too low. The levelers are down.

The leveling system on your vehicle works much like filling balloons. When the sensors detect the car is too low, they turn on a pump that fills the bags with air to bring the car to the proper height. If the bags or the lines develop a leak, the cars ride height will be affected. This can also be the case if the air pump fails. Issues with the air ride are not very common, a mechanic should be able to help you diagnose the issue and suggest an appropriate repair.
