help with expedition suspension

7 posts in this topic

My 98 Ford Expedition's air ride suspension died, the compressor no longer works. Do any of you guys have any suggestions on where to bring it or how to fix it. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

MAKE SURE THAT IT IS YOUR COMPRESSOR, YOUR SHOCKS HAVE EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE COMPRESSOR WORKING, THERE ARE SENSORS IN THE SHOCKS AND IF THE SENSOR IS NOT PICKING UP A SIGNAL THE COMPRESSOR WILL NOT WORK.

I JUST REPLACED THE SHOCKS ON MY RIDE CONTROL AMD HAD THE SAME PROBLEM THAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT AND THE PROBLEM WAS RESOLVED,UNFORTUNATLY THE COST IS EXSPENSIVE.

My 98 did the same thing. It ended up being a resistor.

It could be a height sensor, the compressor, resistor, or module. More than likely the compressor took out the resistor. Make sure your on/off switch didn't get bumped and is off. Is the suspenion saging? Are you sure that the compressor is not working at all?

If you can get down around elk river, I have some buddies in service and parts. they said you can hook it up to a TECH 2 scanner and diagnose exactly what it is. pump or shock or sensor. Another cheaper solution is air ride brand air bag shocks. Replace the old shocks with the air rides.

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.

      Cliff, Why do you use a 1/2 crawler and not a whole one? I usually use a whole crawler on my Lindy. I caught this nice 27" tonight on a red #2 with a green soft bead and a big fat whole crawler.
