    Diag port is in the trunk on the passenger side, above where the jack should be in the side saddle area, but I don't think an OBD1 code reader will work with that port.

    the air suspension light basically only comes on when the compressor runs for too long and does not make trim height. Forget the timeout, maybe 60 seconds. Usually its an air leak but it might be a tired compressor, which is usually tired because it has an air leak. If the suspension doesn't sink, I'll bet its leaky where the line connects to the compressor and/or the air spring in the babck.

    Its been the same height for a day now, i know from having it on a lift and turning the air susp off, you have to turn the air suspension back on and start it to get the lift arms out, the pump did run quite a bit, it runns every morning, but the car doesnt look any lower

    On a lift check the connections with soapy water. There are only a few. One at compressor. A "t" and one on each shock. Or maybe one shock has two ports incorporating the "t" function. If the leak is in the shock itself I don't know where it shows a leak so I guess soap the entire bladder. I don't know where else the shock would loose air.

    If there are no problems with the springs causing the lean It is probably the shocks. Do they have signs of oil leaks which is an indicator they have lost their normal shock absorbing function?

    The only valve action is in the compressor. Each shock is directly connected to the other with no valves between them. So the pressure in each shock is always equal. So if the car really is crooked it is a suspension issue which includes the shocks & springs. I guess you are not carrying an anvil in one side of the trunk?

    Even if the car is uneven does it go up and down when you add or remove weight ?

    I took a quick look at the air springs, there were some little cracks at the bottom of both, nothing i would think serious, my concern is the car sat level and everything 2 days ago, i was just looking on the ground, i cant see the shocks but i didnt feel and oil or wetness

    That's an air spring kit. You have air shocks.

    94 is air springs, not shocks. Proper solenoids and all.

    Don't replace the air springs unless they are actually leaking. If it doesn't sink, thats not the problem.

    If the compressor doesn't run, figure out why. Not much there, fuse, relay, and pump. The pumps rarely die completely but they can get weak and refuse to make enough air pressure. If it runs and trims up to height, also probably not the issue. Soapy water is your friend. I'd bet you'll find it leaking somewhere, and it can be sorted out with some new O rings. If it is actually a bad air spring, the soap will prove it and then you can be confident that a new part will actually fix the problem.

    yes I'm incredibly cheap, but people throwing parts at the air suspension system without diagnosing them is why they get such a bad rap. You can spend a bunch of money and replace all of the parts to hopefully make it function, but its a pretty fair bet that isn't necessary.

    Arnott is probably the best bet for parts that actually work. Not the cheapest but its good quality.

    Fuse was blown, ill get it on a lift soon and do that soapy water trick, i just ment if the pumps weak or a bags leaking ill just do the whole system and not have anymore problems seeing as its not super expensive, but if its just orings ill just do them

    Arnott is the best for air bags. I got the HD limo bags with aluminum piston. Pricey but well worth it.

    then each spring is controlled individually. Still soap is the best 1st bet if the pump runs.

    I got new problem with the town car, to start the transmission fluid is at an ok level and it a pink color, on my way back home it seemed to slip out of 4th 2 maybe 3 times, twice on a flat surface and maybe a 3rd up hill(could have been a down shift was hard tho) i didnt seem to lose an speed though
    Also cruise was set at 60

    If the fluid is ok I would suggest checking the mlps harness for signs of water intrusion. Did it freewheel or downshift? Usually thats indicative of a misaligned or failing mlps.

    I would say freewheel, because i heard the engine roar up, well i guess it could have down shifted, huh, do these have a like tv sort of bushing or something like that? Is it going to cause catastrophic damage if i drive the car say 10 miles? The mlps is the neutral safety switch yes

    No bushing to check as 94 is all electronic. You can push the OD-OFF button on the end of the shift lever and disable OD to prevent the issue to drive it around. If the transmission is all original, it's probably the torque converter clutches being pretty much shot. There could also be OD band issues and main clutch pack issues as well. The stock transmissions don't like to make it past about 130K miles with the soft shifting programming. A mild j-mod and rebuild with new torque converter will make it pretty bullet proof though.

    Yes the mlps is the neutral safety switch. I would still check/replace it before messing with the transmission.

    I vaguely remember a quick and dirty test where you put it in 2nd gear and floor it to I think check that the overdrive band is holding. Someone correct me if Iím wrong.
