2000 S430 airmatic suspension

hello my 2000 s430 is real low on the right hand passenger side front and back. when i turn the car on the the red warning lite comes on saying cars to low to drive after a couple of minutes the car lifts up but its not fully leveled out, when i hit a bump i can hear a hissing sound coming from the front passenger side. When i turn the car on i can feel and see the airmatic suspension rising but it never rises to level out.is there anyone that can give me some details as of wut to do and why this is happening...thank you...

Welcome to the forum.

The Airmatic suspension is written up often in this forum. However, you have a problem that needs to be addressed quickly, so I'll avoid the "Search The Forum" response and guide you to these posts: #6 at http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w220...yes-again.html and Post #14 at Picked up a 2000 s430 - MBWorld.org Forums (last half of the post).

It is likely you have a leak in one of your front struts (on the low side) and will also burn out your airmatic pump unless you fix it VERY soon. Please see your dealer or an MB certified independent technician as soon as you can.

Once you get that problem under control, please see http://www.benzworld.org/forums/new-...lp-i-hope.html - and good luck to you.
