Customer Question

Good evening. My issue is my air suspension compressor for my 2009 Caddy STS with the 4.6 V8/AWD. Compressor is not working. Needs replacing. Looking over the net to purchase one.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Until it stopped working, the compressor was continuously running as if the suspension was trying to maintain air. After a while, it stopped working. Now, my car has a "hard" ride.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Cadillac Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

More than likely it burned out from running continuous due to a leak in the system, more than likely the shocks, so you need to have it checked for leaks before replacing the motor or else the new one will go bad. Please give a positive rating. Thanks
