Hello, my name is***** most common cause of an intermittent air leak is the rear air springs themselves. They develop small cracks that will leak in certain positions and not others. It all depends on how the vehicle is sitting when it is turned off. The only way to tell for sure is to check all of the system with soapy water. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need any other help.
