I had just replaced the air ride compressor with a used one, but not it takes kind of long for the car to rise to the right level. Do you think it might be something i did wrong or there is a air leak that caused the other compressor to brake and the problem is still there?
What should I check first? When there is 3 people on the back seat the compressor works for several minutes. Is that normal? Maybe I just pay too much attention to it now.....

Re: Air ride compressor
Use the tried and true technique of getting the car up on a lift, start the engine and level the car. Shut down and spray a soap solution over the shocks and lines. Bubbles ??? Leak. You may have to trace the problem all the way back to the compressor connector.
