Re: Air Suspension Compressor
It comes down to suspension duty. If the vehicle is driven on a gravel road for instance or one with lots of holes, the suspension will have to recover itself (use more air) than it would if you were traveling down a smooth interstate.
If the compressor kicks in often, and for extended periods then you might have a slow leak. The best way to diagnose yourself is to get a spray bottle, fill it with a cup of red hand soap and soak the lines, bags, everything that has air going through it. If you see any bubbles, then you'll know you have a small leak. If you don't see anything, I'd keep driving it until it becomes worse yet. Last thing you'll want to do, is to take it into a shop, so they can spray it with hand soap for you!
