Is Your Suspension Failing?
How do I know if my 1995-1998 Ford Windstar Air Suspension is failing?
If you hear your air compressor running for longer than it should (never longer than 15-20 seconds maximum), or if your air compressor has stopped working completely, look further for signs of a leaking or failed air suspension system. The 1995-1998 Ford Windstar may display any of these common signs of a bad suspension system. You will want it fixed before total failure sets in. The most noticeable sign is a sudden height difference between the rear and front ends of the Windstar. This usually looks like the vehicle is squatting down too low to the ground because the rear suspension fails first. Confirm your suspicion by looking for an illuminated suspension warning message on the instrument panel. If any of these signs are present, you may need a suspension repair or replacement.
What kind of suspension does my 1995-1998 Ford Windstar have?
The 1995-1998 Ford Windstar is built with the following suspension components:
1995-1998 Ford Windstar Air Struts (x2)- struts that contain an air bladder whose dampening capabilities is controlled by the suspension control module; these have two functions. They connect the wheel of a vehicle to the driving surface in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle. They also help maintain the vehicles correct ride height, especially whenever the amount of load put onto the vehicle changes.
1995-1998 Ford Windstar Air Springs (x2)- commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that is fitted on top of the strut that uses pressurized air as a cushion instead of a metal coil spring to hold a vehicle off of the ground and off of its wheels. These are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.
1995-1998 Ford Windstar Shock Absorbers (x2)- a metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid that is connected to the wheel of a vehicle in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle.
1995-1998 Ford Windstar Compressor- This vehicle is equipped with one air suspension compressor. The compressor is responsible for pumping up the air springs and shocks. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor is forced to run continuously to try and keep the air springs inflated. After a couple of days of running non-stop, the compressor will burn itself out. Replacing the compressor is a timely and expensive project to undertake.
1995-1998 Ford Windstar Dryer Assembly- This vehicle is equipped with a dryer assembly. The dryer assembly is responsible for getting moisture out of the air lines. Once the air suspension parts start to leak, moisture will build up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension components from the inside out. The dryer must be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced to prevent further damage.
1995-1998 Ford Windstar Suspension Control Module- This vehicle is equipped with a suspension control module. This module is the brain of the suspension system and it reads all of the signals that are being sent by the height sensors and determines if the vehicle needs to be raised or lowered.
1995-1998 Ford Windstar O-rings- Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.
