02 buick lesabre shocks

Showing 8 out of 18 Posts | Show 10 Hidden Posts
Question From dr.donut on 02 buick lesabre shocks

This is a 2002 buick lesabre custom with a 3.8 and about 85,000 miles ,,the wife takes it to work every day and recently she said it drove "bouncy" I tried it out and noticed it didn't drive like I remembered , any bumps are felt kinda hard.mostly from the rear. The rear shocks I replaced not even 40,000 miles ago they are the self adjusters with an air feed from a leveling sensor from what I understand. I also remember hearing what sounded like a small compressor going on for a short time just after start up and I didn't hear that recently ., at any rate it feels more rigid and hoped I could get an idea of what I'm dealing with before taking out the back seat and nosing around, thanks.

Response From dr.donut

good looking out ,I did have to replace the battery don't know if that did it but I'll check for any voltages on the leveling sensor and such

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I sure would hope fuse out and item unplugged and tied away it wouldn't drain battery. It might have many times before this fix and harmed the old one or if old enough ready for a surprise anyway - hard to know that just the odds go up dramatically with age of a battery.


What Buick did for this car will escape me as historically they made so many versions of this model by name. Can't know but think this model would also be huge for the rental car industry which would buy so many they set the specs of features such that there's less crap to go wrong for the customer who doesn't want to be stranded for silly things on a vehicle they are probably unfamiliar with for a rental.


Buick by name again was famous for making I'll say "sleeper" cars that don't attract attention but could have the very latest techno stuff, creature features and remain discrete (blend in) not like an obvious luxo car.


If worried put a voltmeter on its battery known charged that you can see many hours later if it drops with any hood light out if equipped. It might drop from say 12.6V 1/2 hour later and shouldn't with a new battery. Right away it does still draw some current for "X" many minutes not enough to pull down battery but would show up like a drain and be normal.


I really still think you are fine unless something is plain broken about something,


T

Response From dr.donut

I pulled the fuse for the air ride system already thinking they would relax ,the fuse is still out and the supply lines are tucked up out of the way that shouldn't cause any problems , would it ?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Just for good measure I'd test any plugs with a plain test light to see if they have power especially when ignition is ON. Some older PITA ones ran with the car off dammit and killed batteries!


If worried or find there's a problem may need to test for a parasitic drain but I really doubt that. I think you are done,


T

Response From dr.donut

It's just the way it is I guess .. Took a short test drive and all seemed good. Next morning dead battery, thought it was an isolated incident ,charged it up and on our way but it was dead again at noon so I got a new battery and all is good for now , funny how other things go wrong when repairing one item ,I think these cars are haunted sometimes ,maybe a reality show in the works .Thanks again .

Response From Tom Greenleaf

? If no air pressure and level being watched now you do need to know those are NOT using electricity now. Disconnected at least at the pump and maybe at sensors and sealed off from the elements.


Said somewhere I made some just a tire valve to leave at one pressure and change if needed depending on what was wrong with those systems and budget for owners,


T

Response From dr.donut

I replaced the air ride shocks with the conversion kit ,a coil over shock . They were not easy to find at auto stores and I would have went on line if I didn't find them at pep boys after some bad info and some running around . With the rear suspension hanging they went right in with the help of a bottle jack to squeeze them a bit and they ride nice ..I thought the old ones might want to expand but they did not , they were seized up ,$300** worth of scrap metal held in both hands ,fantastic .

Response From Tom Greenleaf

I can't vouch for what you found just that some vehicles were/are AIR only for spring and or strut so any issue holding air the vehicle fell flat to bottom, some cut up tires of proper size - a problem.


Later as some when newer were insane bucks each! I mean whole car 1,000s of $$s then just coil over "strut" or shock was created and seemed to work fine but can't say from driving those enough to know if character was correct. IDK - other models of same vehicle body were not made that way from new and did fine.


In general hate to deviate from OE but this would be one I'd think about hard for myself or others especially at age and if it behaved properly and could be aligned properly,


T

Response From dr.donut

I can get the conversion pair for just over $100** ,I have to see my trusty mech. yet ,the ones on it are not that old so I'm weighing options ,just looking for normalcy ,thanks again we'll get back.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

If those are worth their weight in donuts (smile) then go for it. At some point if no other reason do you really need this thing to self level? Lots of vehicles don't and do fine. If you want a freaking truck buy a truck.


I can see the need or want if you were always changing loads from just you driving to a car full of people and stuff back and forth all the time. Other than that to me it's just another something to cause a headache,


T

Response From dr.donut

hammer said the shocks may be jammed, this pretty much what it's like and would add up too because the compressor would go on every time after start up , is there a way to un-jam them ?

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

If a shock jammed I doubt it would "un-jam" plus probably stay in one spot wrecked and ride like a buckboard already mentioned.


Air pump coming on when just started can be normal. Just temp of air from last use or how it's parked it's already trying to adjust but should quit the pumping up sound. Once driving it delays adjustment for road conditions and you don't hear it anyway.


Just fill up with fuel it adjusts again or more load.


So if you are having trouble isolating if air is the problem, adjuster to that or the shock part maybe take it all out depending on what more you find and put in new air or shock or if both together do it.


You just have to know if it's over adjusted and too high or a broken shock which should be off more than the 1 inch you said I would think?


T

Response From dr.donut

The problem did occur this summer and today's our hottest day here in N.Y so if the wife complains that they are worse then that could be a factor. The tires are not new but different brands new ones go on in winter.I didn't think one inch difference to the wheel well mattered but included it any way ..Car junky was my first stop so I'll look around some more ,thanks again.

Response From dr.donut

So , I jumped up on the back end of the car and both sides seemed to compress the same (240lbs. of donuts) they seemed stiff but I don't know how they're supposed to react. Got underneath and the arm and wiring for the adjuster looked good with no corrosion , got the pics , drivers sits at 28" and pass at 29" , rear tires are same size at 35 psi ,different maker , I took the air supply off thinking air would come out but that did not happen ,what do yous think ? I couldn't get the pics in ,maybe they are I don't know it's not my thing .

Response From Tom Greenleaf

LMAO - "240 lbs of donuts!!" (Thanks, needed the chuckle)


Is this thing up like in heat or something? That's those adjuster rods OR the dang thing they send signal to the dinky compressor up front.


The height difference is totally possible by different brands of tires brand new. Can be marked the right size and be correct and that far off but is enough IMO for just brand.


IDK - some of these if in heat like I said like it's azz in the air if too much bull on a certain car and parts or controls out of sight expensive I've made them plain one setting air shocks for lift only types not total spring and no longer self leveling which was only both rears not each one separately on tad older stuff by GM,


T

Response From Discretesignals

Is the rear of the vehicle jacked up? Seen level sensor arms come off causing the compressor to pump the shocks up to their full height and give you a buckboard ride. Take a side view picture of the car and post it in here.

Response From Hammer Time

You easily could have a shock jammed up. Go to the rear and manually bounce the car and see how much it moves.

Question From chickenhouse on 96 Buick Riv

Putting new air shocks on and not getting any reaction from compressor to auto lift rear of car. Looking for location of air compressor fuse or relay to check for power.

Response From Hammer Time




The relay is in the left rear power distribution center

Response From chickenhouse

WOW Hammer! You sure are a fast sketch artist! He is looking inside the trunk on the passenger side. So far he found a box next to a rear speaker, exploring this and phone call got dropped. Will report back. Thanks.

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This seems to make no sense at all but that relay box is actually in the engine compartment

Response From chickenhouse

Have AC compressor, fog lamps, flash to pass, horn relays (2) 20Amp & relay. Nothing noted for air compressor relay.

Response From chickenhouse

B C E & F are all blank. Looked under "B" and there are no wires to that location.

Response From Hammer Time

Your either looking at the wrong box or the car isn't equipped with air leveling, likely the wrong box.

Response From chickenhouse

It deffinetly has leveling in it. Everything is there. From what he is describing it sounds like he is in the vicinity. 16 miles away from me, doing this by AT&T. Will tell him to hunt another box. Thanks.

Response From Hammer Time

He is looking in the engine compartment , right?

Response From chickenhouse

Yes sir. Describes the same as the pics you sent except that the section for the air ride is blank with no wires going to it. It is a 98 Buick Riviera. Thanks

Response From Hammer Time

Well, your title says it's a 96!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's under the back seat on the passenger side next to the battery

Response From chickenhouse

Well DUH! I AM SORRY! Got my APV mixed up with it, I apologize! Will report back and thank you for your patience with my Dumbness!

Response From Hammer Time

At least you can spell.........................LOL

Response From chickenhouse

Now then- 2 boxes under the rear seat. LOTS of fuses! Can you pinpoint the leveling relay? White cover has relays. A B C D E & F. C & F are open A trunk release- B says ELC. (?) D Door unlock E has F/pmp (fuel pump) Rest is a bank of fuses- 2 spots for relays 1 relay installed in section B.

Response From Hammer Time

It shows the same picture I already posted for that year too.

Response From chickenhouse

Hammer- He FOUND it! Said it looks kinda Fried too! Told him to find another relay and to check the voltage to the relay before he burns another relay. Thanks!

Response From Hammer Time

A burnt relay would indicate a compressor drawing too much current.

Response From chickenhouse

Now the truth comes out. He replaced theair shocks because the bags on both shocks were blown out. So it sounds lie the compressor ran continous until the relay got hot. Just called, said he put a relay from rear window defogger in compressor's spot. Said car is up 4 inches above the rear tire. Thinks it is working. Will get replacement relay tomorrow A M. Need him to get a fuel pump for my 92 Z-71 anyway. Thanks Hammer- will keep ya posted!

Response From Hammer Time

You may have a bad level sensor that is not shutting the compressor off until it blows the bags. Better pull the relay on it until you find out.

Response From chickenhouse

Will pass it along- Thanks Hammer.

Response From chickenhouse

All is well with this project. Car sits a good 4 " higher and does not bottom out any more. Thanks for the help and patience!

Response From Hammer Time

Look at the pictures I gave you
