LTD - NA - Self Leveling Suspension
Need somebody to confirm the following information. For nearly 4 months I have been having trouble with this damn thing and I believe I have finally figured out how to fix it without spending a fortune.
Contrary to what Ford says, you can service the air compressor or at least swap out the failed parts with another compressor you have sourced from the wreckers. Having overhauled the compressor, removed and replaced the feed filter (under battery), removed and replaced fine filter(inside compressor), overhauled piston & checked and cleaned rings), checked the operation of the overpressure switch (air compressor), and resealed the entire unit. I still had severe overheating problems that resulted in system failure.
Yes I have already replaced the air shockers with newbies from Peddars. However, what I didnt count on was the one way flow valve that resides on the inside of the air dryer unit. (This can not be undone - so I destroyed one of these trying to figure out how it worked).
Is this the only one in the system? I am getting somebody to gerry rig a flow value that I can splice into the line near the T-piece. What I need somebody to confirm is, are there dump valves in the shockers that lower the car when it gets to high due to a change in height.
By the way the self diagnostic returns 4 flashes which means correct system operation.
