    888 ata wc 2009 problem - help me please

    I bought a new 888 ata wc 2009 oem fork and It is new.
    I have used it for 4 rides. In the middle of the last ride (that was crosscountry only) i have discovered that the fork was too soft. After the ride i checked ata air pressure and discovered that is was completley empty, and when i push the valve of the ata air pressure air comes out. I blew up the ata air pressure and it seems to be ok .but now i'm not sure that everything is ok, it feels like it's stiffer now. or maybe it will happend again in the middle of a drop or something.
    Do i have to worry? is there something to do? or it will be ok?

    There is a procedure to fill up your air chambers, of which you have two. PAR and ATA.

    Procedure (I weigh 150lbs):
    1. Drain air from ATA.
    2. Drain air from PAR.
    3. Put air into PAR. I run about 80psi for smooth trails and 100+psi for big jumps.
    4. Put air into ATA. MUST be 30psi less than PAR pressure. I typically use 50psi.

    but why did the air suddenly come out.
    isn't it a problem?

    I'm not quite sure what you mean in your first post.

    "After the ride i checked ata air pressure and discovered that is was completley empty, and when i push the valve of the ata air pressure air comes out."

    How would it have been completely empty if air was released when you push the valve?

    I doubt this was it but you can use it as a reference for understanding how the ATA system works:
