Is your temperature gauge also not working?

Is your front suspension losing pressure, rear, or both?

OK, the fuel and temp gauge problem is an easy fix: 7 Volt Regulator

As for the air...if it's not leaking fast enough to bubble up and show where it is, the only thing you can really do is to pull apart all the different fittings, clean and lubricate them (replace any iffy O-rings while you're at it) and put them back together tightly. If it's still leaking at that point, it's likely going to be the shocks themselves that are leaking.

The regulator is located behind the central instrument cluster (the thing with all the warning lights on it), it's a gold-colored box about 1 inch long with three wires coming out of it.
