Entire Vehicle Suddenly Sinking?
Three days ago I noticed our 2003 Envoy SLT 4WD (currently set on 2WD) seemed to be rather suddenly out of alignment as the vehicle began gently pulling to the right, which was quite unusual. The next day, the right side appeared to possibly be "sagging" a little bit and, by this morning, both sides in the back have quite noticeably dropped -- and it appears that the front end may be dropping now as well! Turning the engine on does not result in any raise whatsoever and, instead of hearing the gentle whirr of the motor leveling the vehicle, one hears something more along the lines of a clicking or cranking sound.
All of this has occurred during a notable cold spell -- 4 degrees F.
In addition, my husband has noticed fluid in our driveway that appears to be coming from under the engine; he has been unable to identify what the fluid is or where it's coming from.
From reading this forum it appears air suspension problems are relatively common on the Envoy, but it seems our experience -- with fluid possibly leaking, potentially the entire vehicle involved, and the suddenness with which absolute failure of the vehicle's suspension has occurred -- may be unusual.
Any ideas/thoughts/suggestions as to what might be going on and how to approach repair would be sincerely appreciated!
