The 03' SLE does have air shocks in the back whether it'* got the button and Schroeder valve or not, that was a premium feature my SLE apparently didn't get while it is one of my favorite parts of the SSEi.

How often is this kicking in? Usually mine kicks on for a few seconds when I first start the car, or if you put a load in the car throwing it off balance. If it is running for long periods of time or over and over again you probably have a bad shock that is leaking air.

sitting still it will kick on run for about 25 to 30 sec and shut off then 4 to 5 min later will repeat , if it is leaking i dont think it is bad but for 75 ish bucks might as well just replace in my line of thinking , thanks for the feed back im really liking this forum

In my opinion, that'* a pretty decent sized leak if it cycles ever 4 or 5 minutes to keep things level.

I'm at the point where I need to replace mine as the tire shop told me I have one leaking when they put it up on the rack. I'm going to look into the O'Reilly deal.

I'm new here too, and I like the atmosphere of this forum. People jump at the chance to help people out. It makes you think there'* still hope for the human race.

Yeah that'* a pretty bad leak, it shouldn't have to run except for when you first start the car, or turn on the key, (to test the pump and sensor) unless you increase the weight in the back of the car.
