Live in WI.. cold cold cold. Car was riding very rough so i figure my elc was shot... put it in garage and thawed it out and everything worked fine. everytime i bring it back outside it freezes back up. How can i get the moisture out of the line?? i dont wanna buy a bunch of new parts, kinda strapped for cash. what can i do????
I cant hear the pump run... the other day when i had it in the garage i took the air lines off the shocks and heard just a slight bit of air come out... turned car on and nothing came out the disconnected air lines. The only thing i can think of is the lines were froze so the air didnt come out... but what about not hearing the pump? And after it was warmed up and had the car running i sat on the trunk and sagged it down but it never aired up... not even sure where the compressor is and whatever else goes with the system... know there is one part by my drivers rear tire on frame with the level arm thing on there right?
Moisture is probably the culprit along with subsequent freezing. If you can get some rubbing alcohol in the lines near the pump, and then open the line at the farthest point in the system to bleed out, then do that for all lines; the alcohol will bind with the water and push out of your system. I used this on my 92 Explorer that I had set up with an on-board compressor and air shocks.
Ok. Where would I put the alcohol at? I guess Im not sure where the compressor is... possible its my shocks that are frozen? Like right now if i went and jumped on my trunk it would be like pretty much jumping on blacktop its so hard, its really springy, just up and down like an inch if im lucky and pops back up... hard to explain i guess hope ya get what i am trying to say...
