Default air suspension tank

Where do you put the air in at on an 95 Lexus ls400? Is it under the hood like to the right side of the engine? Is it an wire with an screw off top with an "L" on the top?

what in the blue blazes are you trying to do?

You aren't supposed to need to "add air" to anything in the LS400 except the tires, and there is no provision to externally fill the factory air suspension tank.

If you have factory air suspension then it's not a matter of needing air. Something is wrong with your level sensors, or the bags have leaks and the car keeps trying to fix it by pumping them back up.

The first thing I would look at doing is getting soapy water and putting them all over the bags onthe side of the car the keeps falling/leaning and look for bubbles. If bubbles form you have a leak. If not then I would look at the sensors. Although the fact that the car keeps pumping air back into the mags makes me think the sensors are fine.

The replacement is needed in most of the cases.
