    Default leak

    help!
    Hey I'm new to the site. I found you when I was Googling for articles about air ride leaks. I have a 63 Lincoln Cont with air ride. Two tanks, two compressors front, back and side to side OMS controls.
    The system was on the car when I bought it so I dont know much more details. My problem is the front end leaks down to 100% down within about two - three hours, but it stars leaking down within 30 minutes after its aired up. The back of the car stays up for a week. I have checked the tanks and when totally aired up the guage is 190 lbs on a 200 lb guage. The pressure stays up on the tank guage but the front end drops. I dont know if its important, but it takes 7 minutes to totally fill the two tanks. Where do I start to try and figure this out? Thanks!

    Get a spray bottle and fill with soapy water. Air up front end and spray fittings. They will bubble where leaking. Your tank pressure only goes down when you raise the vehicle unless you have leaky valves. If it is leaking that bad, you may hear the leak as well. The soapy water will help you a ton. Then we can figure out a fix. 7 minute fill fime, guessing at least 5 gal tank, probably pair of 480 viair comps. Normal. Pm me if you have more questions. Not a lot of help on this site anymore.

    Yep. The spray will help you narrow it down. Bubbles leaking, no bubbles move on!
