Air shock problem

So I pumped it up and them went and rode it off the curve in my driveway. It immediately lost all air pressure and bottom out and did not rebound at all. So I tried to pump it up again and it would only rebound to about a third of the travel. Its a cheap x-fusion shock so if its broken I dont think its worth repairing.

Sounds like a bad air can seal. take it back to the shop you bought the bike from, or a good LBS, they should be able to get the parts to repair it or send it back to x-fusion for repair, either way it shouldn't cost that much to repair, if it is just the air can seal it shouldn't cost much more than $50

if you're lucky, the valve core might be loose or bad. Try putting it in some water pumped up and try to find where the leak is. If it's out of the core, you can get a core tool from any auto parts shop.

the best way to find out were the leak is to fill with air and put it inside a water container, like you do with tubes to find leaks.

it may just be the valve core... just go to an automotive store and ask them to replace the valve core... it´s cheap and could prevent losing time and money...
