Xantia Sinking

Post by Chetiya Dias » 21 Sep 2014, 09:18

I have a problem with the front. When engine is knocked off the front goes down to the lowest height. Even parked in max height.

If it isn't a 'sinker' (very early model) then it is most likely a leaking or non-functional anti-sink valve.

An indication of how quickly it goes down would be very helpful.

Is it seconds, minutes, hours or days ?

Thanks a lot kenny. Sorry for the delay in replying. My car is a Xantia 2 YOM 2000 with a 2.0i 16v engine. This doesn't happen all the time. Some times it sinks and some times it doesn't. When it does it happens in about 10 minutes time.
