REAR AIR BAGS LEAKS ,CAN I CHANGE TO SHOCK - 1998 Ford Expedition

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Good Evening, you can change to air shocks however you would have to get with your local parts store and have them match up one that would fit, due to the fact that those affect ride height. I have done it before with the windstars with much success and know it can be done, i would always recommend original type replacement even if it is from a salvage yard first.Glad to help.

Rear Air Shocks only work sometimes. The rear air shocks in my 2000 Buick LeSabre only seem to work sporadically. I recently had both the shocks and the compressor replaced, but nothing has changed. The shocks sometimes make a clunking sound, probably when they're not working. How can I tell where the problem is exactly, and how do I solve it?

My 2004 Ford Expedition 4.6l has a rough idle and occasionally backfires. My check engine came on and I had it diagnosed and it said it was the O2 sensors. I changed all 4 sensors and the mass air. I searched online and was suggested that it was the PCV valve which would send a false O2 sensor code, but just found out on fixya that the expedition doesn't have a pcv valve. Any suggestions on what it could be? I have changed the air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, O2 sensors and mass air.


Well i'm sorry that you got the miss information here on fixya. because all internal combustion engines need a pcv valve to operate properly.now the information you got first is correct and pcv valve can set false codes like o2's and lean ... 2004 Ford Expedition

The rear suspension is down on my 1999 Ford Expedition - Eddie Bauer. The cause: while out in the woods I came across a small dip which cause my back left wheel to lift off the ground. The suspension system caused the rear to pump up to the max. I placed a small rock (4'' tall) under the left rear wheel and the Expedition backed out easily. The rear was still at max height. I then heard air exhausting from the front then the rear suspension sat down. I shut the down the engine then restarted. Th
