Is the air ride button on? The button is inside the trunk on the left side. There is a small compartment that has a small door on that side. Just open the door and you'll be able to see the switch and make sure that it is on.

Do all 4 shocks not inflate? A leak in one would make it lean. I'd be surprised if you had a leak in all 4. Did the problem exist when you bought the car?

There also can be a leak in the system iteself causing the pump to run continuous potential burning the pump out. The air ride system is a complicated one and I recommend someone with some expertise to look at and diagnose your issue. Someone such as yourself might spend a lot of time trying to fix it and never find a solution. I know you don't have a lot of money, but owning a car isn't cheap.
