    ALC Replacement

    I just replace my compressor because my car was jacked up due the exhaust valve failure . I tested my junk yard replacement and it was fine once installed it failed to inflate the shocks. I know I didnt have any leaks because my car was jacked up all the time. Any ideas on this one tx.

    once installed it failed to inflate the shocks

    I assume you checked all the related fuses - and the compressor runs -

    that means either the compressor itself is worn out -
    and not supplying air pressure -

    or there is a leak either in the compressor - or the air lines -

    or the exhaust valve is stuck open -
    thus immediately venting any air the compressor is producing -

    if the original compressor worked - except for the failed exhaust solenoid -
    you could try swapping the junk yard exhaust to the original compressor -

    Re: ALC Replacement

    Thanks for the Ideas . The compressor is powered. The old one works fine except for the exhaust solnoid . Is there any way to test and see if the compressor is weak . I can feel the air coming out of it when I power it up . I dont think I have any leaks because the car was always Jacked up. if it had leaks I assume it wouldnt stay jacked up .
