So I got the EAS fault. Mechanic said fault showed left rear valve perminatly stuck. He changed the rear airbags thinking that was the problem. A week later went into the same fault. Mechanic told me it was the valve block so I ordered a valve block but then read that that code meant it was probably the compressor so I decided to go with the compressor instead. The compressor gets it up faster but it runs an awfull lot more than I think it should and the vehicle ends up lowered in the AM. So I decieded to unplug the auto level plug from under the seat to stop the auto level. This morning I came out and the rear end was on the ground and the front was still up. Left rear side about an inch lower than the right.

I guess my question is "is sometimes a left valve stuck really a left valve stuck?"

Thanks

sounds like a good leak from the LR valve. it probalby wore out your compressor, so hold on to the replacement, but a valve block rebuild is in order next.

Hi Dennis,

I already put the compressor in. I got it from you guys on Tuesday. I will order the valve block then. At least the car is lifting a lot faster in the morning with the new compressor. I am not bouncing all the way to work on the bump stops. But I do want to get the leak fixed ASAP so I don't put too much stress on the new compressor.

Do the actual line running to the springs leak very often or is that pretty rare?

Just to clarify, the LR valve is in the valve block.

Not a very good mechanic if he thought replacing the airbags would fix it - there are no valves in them.

A valve block rebuild is MUCH cheaper than a new one.
