Dear customeri apology for my delay. I had to sort out some personal issues. The suspension of your great voyager is pneumatic, it does not use a pump, it uses a compressor, the difference is that the compressor works with air and the pump works with hydraulic fluid.

The pneumatic compressor of your suspension can cause sounds due to various factors. The good thing is that i noted that the suspension has not gone down means that the suspension is not being affected, but I recommend you disassemble the compressor as soon as possible and do a review and a maintenance since it is likely to have a lot of internal dirt and is impeding the entry air causing the compressor to be forced and because of this it produces this sound.

Therefore I recommend that you do this compressor maintenance as soon as possible because the longer you try the more you run the risk that the compressor may be damaged.
