The Toyota dealer should have replacement seals if your leak is at the base or replacement sensors if too damaged

My tires keep losing air pressure


Rosie, Tires loose air usually for the following reason, could have a small puncture, Tire may have deep weather/cure cracking,valve stem leaking, tire to rim seal(corroded or damaged), even big changes in temperature can change air pressure in a tire.
Best to take it into a good shop and have diagnosed and repaired.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides for more info., Good luck.

I have a 2006 VW Passat and the Low Tire Pressure light came on. I put air on the tires and the light went off but it came back on the next day.


Check the tire pressure again, including the spare. It's quite possible that you have a tire with a slow leak that may need to be repaired. Hope this helps.

My tire pressure sensor keeps coming on every few days, It recently started this since the weather has turned cold. I keep putting air in the tires. is there anything I can do so that I don't have to keep...


Tires do lose air pressure when the temperature drops. They should stabilize after a while and ndot need constant service. Don't rely on the tire pressure sensor. Use a good tire gage to determine the need to add air. If you are adding air every few days, I would think you had a slow leak somewhere. Is it all 4 tires or just one. What about the wheels. Are they the original wheels, or customs. Some custom wheels don't seal as well as the originals. If you really are losing air every few days, you might want to consider sealing the tires with a commercial product such as the one called Slime. It's kind of pricey, but works great.

What does it mean if the tire light stays on in an 06 scion tc, after you have checked the tire pressure and reset the light


the light means that there is still a problem with the tire system, if there is a spare make sure to check that. If the light is still on after setting all tire pressures then there is most likely one of your tire pressure sensors bad which is the valve stem if equipped. What you can try is pump all tire pressures up to about 45 psi, then qiuckly let the air out one tire at a time. This kinda wakes up the system. If this doesn't solve it then you will have to take it to the dealer.

How to reset the tire pressure on a 08' chevy tahoe?


TPMS Sensor Matching Procedure

Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: driver side front tire, passenger side front tire, passenger side rear tire, and driver side rear tire using a TPMS diagnostic tool. See your dealer/retailer for service.

The TPMS sensors can also be matched to each tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. If increasing the tire's air pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure indicated on the tire's sidewall.

To decrease air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key.

You have two minutes to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:

  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
  3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen.
  4. Start with the driver side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for five seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position.
  6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds two times to indicate the sensor identification code has been matched to the driver side rear tire, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes off.
  9. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

Toyota 2008 Highlander Hybrid Tires are TREACHOROUS!


A small amount of tire glue is apply on the rim of the tire during mounting.

The tire glue is to ensure there is a good seal and easy mount (when the metal bar slide the tire into the rim).

Air can leak from the tire valve or the rim.

I would use soapy water to check the valve and valve stem for air leak.

It may be too small to detect.

The quick fix is change the valve stem..

Dismount and remount WITH TIRE GLUE at a REAL tire shop will be final corrective measurement.

If you DO NOT go off road and want get a small mileage increase then you can use a smaller tire and rim package.

245-65-17 tires will save a little on your wallet.

2" decrease in diameter reduce the weight and rolling resistance.

The ride feel will be different.

Do a little checking with your local tire shop before you switch.

Good luck.

No codes? Checklist: MAF: Mass Air Flow Sensor, MAP: Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor, Engine Valves/Low cylinder compression, Fuel Injectors, Fuel Pressure, Tire pressure, vacuum leak(s), PCV: Polution Control Valve, Purge Control Solenoid Valve PCSV stuck open/leaking, Intake Air Hose leaking, Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor, Intake Air Temperature Sensor, etc. etc. etc..
Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.
