I have a 1999 all american forward engine bluebird. It has air operated doors on it and when you close the doors you can still push them open by hand. I have replaced the door cylinder and the valve to open and close the door. I'm scratching my head bald if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked to see if the arms attached to the door are not loose or the bolts broken off?

Do they close really slowly? Could be you need to turn up the regulator pressure.
