This vehicle has a air ride suspension option which can read the height of the vehicle, when weight is added the suspension will compensate by appling air to the front and rear shocks. When weight reduced it will lower by venting air from the shocks. If the entire vehicle sits low there is a problem with the air compressor circuit (quite often water in the system and freezes causing damage to the compressor). In your case if only one side is low, check the front and rear shocks, the lowest wheel probably has a leaking shock and can't rise.

    My 2004 Navigator is leaning to the left too? Let us know if you figure it out. I was thinking it could be the leveling sensors too?Thanks

  • Kevin Thorpe Feb 14, 2011

    It could be the leveling sensors, however not likely considering there are 2 seperate inputs from the leveling sensors (being front and rear). That being the case if a leveling sensor was to blame it would only sit low in the rear or on one side in the front ( they are independant). I would still suspect a frozen air line or faulty shocks. They do have individual sensors on the top of each shock to feed back info to the suspension module. I would suggest you have it scanned at a large parts retailer for a possible suspension module code. They usually do it for free, in that they like selling parts. If you have a code get back to me and I will further diagnose for you.

I have a 2003 lincoln navigator. when i start it in the morning the engine get acceleration and deacceleration, it does this for maybe a minute , then runns perfect. the computer shows some codes

Go to an Autozone, Advance auto, or Oreilys for a free Code scan. This will tell you some or all of the problems. Usually this symptom is a result of a bad O2 sensor changing the fuel mix (floating)from lean to rich or the temperature sensor messing with the "cold start sequence".

Frontend unlevel leans to the side

I believe the Lincoln is equipped with an air bag suspension system. The system has probably developed a leak, or a sensor that detects when the vehicle is not level has failed.
