My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you no longer need help post a simple reply to let me know.

If it pumps up and rides level and only does this as it sits several hours or overnight even if they sprayed down the air shock with a spray it can still be leaking and is most common for this issue here.I have done the spray trick before and found no leaks then I removed the air shock and placed it in a tub of water and applied air to it to find the leak.This may need to be done.If it rides level and operates properly once started then this isn't a level sensor or valve block issue or the pump at fault.It is usually a leak that's hard to see.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
