Hello what kind of lincoln is this and where in the front was the vehicle hit? Do you hear the compressor run?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
1997 Lincoln Town car, and it was hit in the grill and part of the driver side headlight
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Ok the air suspension compressor is basically in that area. Does the compressor operate? Any damage to the compressor or lines in that area?

It doesn't appear to be damaged but I have had fluid leaking from the passengers side as well
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

I would check the air suspension fuse first to see if it is popped i the under hood fuse panel, if it worked until the accident, it has to be related to damage from the accident. Power steering fluid leak? It got hit on the drivers side but leaking what kind of fluid on the passenger side?

Not sure what kind of fluid, thought maybe it had something to do with it? And the fuse works good
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No power steering problems
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Its air suspension.. the compressor blows air to the rear air bags, no fluids. If you have a fluid leak I need to know what color. If the fuse is good and the suspension switch is on does the compressor run??????

Compressor runs forever, rear suspension still doesn't lift, and the fluid is a light color of some sort that leaks hot when it first leaks
Lincoln Mechanic: HDGene, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Well I have no idea on the fluid since it has nothing to do with the air suspension without more information, If the compressor runs and runs then it is getting power to operate,but there is an air leak in the system. Follow the air lines coming off the compressor through the damaged area of the vehicle. One of the air supply lines is most likely cut. Follow the fluid leak back to its source to identify whats leaking and what to repair.
