On my 2005 Navigator I hear what sounds like air compressor running while normal driving, wondering if this is an early warning trouble is ahead? I have 105,000 miles on it, how long does air supension last?

Hello, if the suspension compressor is running more than usual it means there is a small air leak in one of the lines.

Finding it isnt easy but you can use a spray bottle with soapy wwater and spray it on all the lines from the compressor to each corner of the vehicle where the struts are located. These are tough suspension systems and last a long time but like anything else it can develope a small leak which will cause the comp to run more than usual/
