Lincoln Navigator Ultimate: Im having an issue with the air

Customer Question

Im having an issue with the air ride system on my 2007 Navi Ultimate. Normally when I start it, it would lift righy away and drive wherever. Now it will not lift. I here the compressor come on but a "hissing noise" from the left front. I want to assume that it's only a hose that needs replacing but by not knowing about that type of vehicle issue it could be something more.
Do you have any suggestions?

Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
The hissing noise is coming from a bro***** *****ne coupling which is located on the drivers front fender under the hood. Look down on the inner fender well for the hissing noise. Ford sells the couplers for about $20.

Even though the coupling is on the driver side front, the hissing noise is coming from the passenger side front. I just want to make sure before I purchase parts.

Just need to clarify where the hissing noise is coming from. Your original statement states a "hissing noise" from the left front. We refer to the left front as the drivers side front. Like the left front tire is the drivers front tire. Now you state it is coming from the Passenger side front which we all the right front.

Ok so...if I'm standing in front looking at my Navi, the hissing noise is coming from the left front.

Check the lines at the compressor and the drier behind the passenger side head light..

Is there any way I could send you a video?
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 years ago.
You could try posting it on youtube and sending me the link. I think there is a way you can make it secure, but I do not know off hand.
