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.
