Hello and welcome to justanswer.com
We may have a problem with a weak compressor. It may be strong enough to fill the system but not to keep pressure in the reservoir. To be sure we will need to have the system scanned for the stored fault codes. A bad compressor usually leaves a code C2303 and or C2302. It can also be a height sensor but usually that would cause the vehicle to lean. Let me know.
