Air Suspension Compressor Replacement Service

What is the Air Suspension Air Compressor all about?

While you might be most familiar with gas-filled shocks and struts, there are actually several different suspension types used today. One is air suspension, which relies on air-filled rubber air bags to provide the cushioning and ride quality necessary. This is actually a more advanced type of suspension than conventional shocks/struts and coil-over springs, but it does have its problems. These systems are inherently more complex than others, and require a significant number of components in order to operate. One of the most important is the air suspension air compressor.

The compressor pumps air into the air bags to raise the chassis off the axles and provide good ride quality. It works in conjunction with a dryer which is often made into the same assembly, although this varies from one automaker to another. If the compressor fails, your air suspension will not be able to adjust, and will be stuck at the inflation level where the compressor quit. Eventually, the air in the air springs will leak out, and the vehicle will sag.

Keep in mind:

  • The air suspension air compressor is not inspected during any type of routine maintenance, although ride level/height issues should be noticeable to technicians.

How it's done:

  • The air suspension air compressor is verified to see if it needs to be replaced
  • The defective air suspension air compressor is removed
  • The new air suspension air compressor is installed
  • The air suspension air compressor is tested for operation
  • The vehicle is tested to ensure proper operation of the air suspension air compressor

Our recommendation:

Given the importance of having an operational air suspension air compressor, we recommend having your vehicle professionally inspected at the first sign of trouble or abnormal operation. Often, compressors fail with little to no warning, but sometimes they do operate erratically or make strange sounds beforehand. If you suspect a problem with your air suspension air compressor, have it inspected by one of our expert mechanics and replaced if necessary.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Air Suspension Air Compressor?

  • Sagging suspension/lower ride height
  • Strange/abnormal sound during compressor operation
  • The compressor doesn’t run at all

How important is this service?

It can be dangerous to operate your vehicle if the compressor quits and the air bags are deflated. In order for your air suspension to operate, you must have a functional air compressor. Without it, there is no way to adjust the volume of air in the airbags and change the ride quality/height. In addition, air will eventually seep out of the airbags slowly, so the vehicle will begin to sag. Have a faulty air suspension air compressor replaced as soon as possible.

Lincoln Town Car - Air Suspension Air Compressor - Richmond, Virginia
well Chad showed up and start looking for the problem and worked up to compressor need to be replaced. His company told him it would take three days to get the parts. But he found the part local and fixed my car right away. I work 911 so he was my 911 call and it was great.
