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.

Robert made initial contact with me the day before the appointment to discuss the required repairs and why I thought that was what was needed. I described the symptoms and he suggested that we should also consider the possibility that additional repairs might be needed. Robert arrived ahead of schedule, introduced himself, and took my car for a very brief test ride to validate the symptoms I had provided. Within minutes after starting the repairs, Robert discovered a metal connector had broken and the repair costs were significantly reduced. Robert, subsequently returned to the parts store and purchased the actual parts needed saving me hundreds of dollars over what a similar repair would have cost me if I had gone to a name brand repair shop. Did I mention that Robert completed the necessary repairs in a hotel parking lot while I rested inside. This is my first experience with "yourmechanic.com." It will not be the last. Thank you Robert. Excellent work.
