Hi, I finally replaced the diaphragm on my rebuilt valve block. I installed it, instead of the one I'm using now (my front goes up when parked). I turned the car with the door opened to fill up the tank first. I noticed that the compressor was working, but one of the wires that provides power to the compressor was a little hot (I accidentally touched it and was surprised by it). I installed the other valve block, and the wire was ok, and the compressor worked and the car started to level. Following the air hoses, I saw that the air comming from the compressor goes to an air filter, then returns to the valve block. When I had the rebuilt valve block, and turned off the car, I heard a "puuuufffffff", like pressured air being released. I think maybe the air is going to the filter and then to the valve block, but it is being stopped there, and it is not going to the tank. I'm not sure if this is something common when rebuilding a valve block, or if I somehow blocked an air passage or something. I'm desperate, and am thinking of ordering a rebuilt unit from Dennis, since my efforts didn't pay off.

The only hing is that he doesn't have a rebuilt unit in stock, and shipping mine from Guatemala to him would take a good month.......jaja :(

Do you guys have any sugestions??????? :think: :think:

Thanks for the prompt response. I think I might have some problem in the non return valves, since I have no air going thru the silencer. Las time I installed it, that was the problem, that is why I changed the diaphragm.

Thanks for the help. I checked the non return valves, and as Dennis said, one was wrong.... :doh:
I thought I followed all the steps when I rebuild it, but I guess I missed that one... :crybaby2:

The good news is that I fixed it, and today I installed it and so far it is working nicely. I hope tomorrow morning it is still at normal height.

Regards
