I have a 2006 Eclipse and the right front tire loses about 4lbs. of air every two days. I have had it to the dealership twice and they cannot find the problem. I am in Missouri and the weather has been cold, but I am not having problems with the other tires. Could it be that by the time I get the car to the dealership the tire is warmed up and no longer losing air? Or could it be a problem with a faulty rim? I had this problem last year in Nebraska and the garage cleaned the rim and everything was fine from April until December.

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.
You can lower the tire pressure in your tires by about 4 lbs. This will help your ride but you may experience outer edge tire wear. The Porsche Cayman has a very stiff suspension and is never going to ride smooth no matter what you do. After all this is a full blown sports car. Sports cars do not ride smooth. You pay a penalty for great handling like your Porsche has. If you have the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) on your car set it for comfort. Other than the tire pressure and possible a different set of tires there is nothing you can do to improve ride comfort.
2006 Ford Truck Explorer NOTE: The tire pressure sensor training prcedure must be done in
an area without radio frequency (RF) noise. RF noise is generated by
electrical motor and appliance operation, cell phones, and remote
1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position three times, ending in
the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key
3. Press and release the brake pedal
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
Sequence: 1- Left Front Tire
2- Right Front Tire
3- Right Rear Tire
4- Left Rear Tire
5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position
three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait for more than two
minutes between each key cycle.
6. The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if train
mode has been entered successfully. If equipped, the message center
displays "TRAIN LEFT FRONT TIRE." Place the magnet on the valve stem of
the LF tire pressure sensor. The horn will sound briefly to indicate
that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the TPMS module.
7.Within two minutes after the horn sounds, place the magnet on the
valve stem of the RF tire pressure sensor. NOTE: If the TPMS module
does not recognize any one of the four tire pressure sensors during the
tire training procedure, the horn will sound twice and the message
center (if equipped) will display "TIRE TRAINING MODE INCOMPLETE." If
this occurs, the entire procedure must be repeated from Step 1.
8. Repeat Step 7 for the RR and LR tires. When the tire training
procedure is complete, the horn will sound once and the message center
(if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE COMPLETE.
This should help. For now, probably all Fords are like this. And I do
not believe that Ford puts sensors in their spares (some GMs do).
you have put your vehicle in learn mode. there is a special tool to relearn tire positons. take vehicle to a dealership and have tire pressures corrected and tire pressure sensors relearned. your tire pressure info. is on your drives door, 07 tahoe should be at 30psi .you can try pushing check and wait for honk, then let air out of left front tire until you hear a honk, then right front, then right rear, then left rear. by then your sensors will be learned but you will have four flat tires, it'll be easier to have someone reprogram using tool.
You may have some uneven wear on your tires. If your tires have more than 1/4" difference in circumference (distance around the tire) the tires could be spinning at different speeds making your cars computer think that you are losing traction.
The owners manual will not give the following information but chapter 3 around pges 40 -49 will tell you how to get into tire monito learning section.
1. Take all four valvestem caps off.
2. Find a tool such as a small diameter philips screwdriver that will work to let air out of the valvestem. A common aluminum 1/8" rivet (round end into valve stem) works very well.
3. Add air so that the tire pressures are all 40+ psi (do not exceed the tire's max. inflation rating on the sidewall).
4. Turn key to on position.
5. Apply parking brake.
6. Press and hold lock/unlock down at the same time (for about 3 seconds) on the key fob until the horn honks and left front park light flashes. Without keyless or remtoe entry fob use the Driver Information buttons on the left of sterring wheel. Press and hold bothe DIC and reset button at the same time for abot 10 seconds this will bring up the personal menu use DIC button to get to Tire monitor menu press and hold reset button untill horn honks and left front light flahes then continue with step 7.
7. Start at the LF tire.
8. Let air out for 4 seconds - count it out (one one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand, four one-thousand).
9. Wait for about 15 seconds* for the honk (sometimes it'll honk right away).
10. Repeat 7 and 8 for the RF tire.
11. Repeat 7 and 8 for the RR tire.
12. Repeat 7 and 8 for the LR tire.
13. With all four now done, the system will give it's final multi-honk completion note.
14. Use a quality gauge to set your final pressures (a good gauge will exactly match the sensor readings).
15. Replace all four valvestem caps.
*If you've waited fifteen seconds for the honk and nothing has happened. Don't panic - Simply repeat 8 and 9 again as there is a two minute window to do each tire sensor.
Veve713: You probably didn't need new tires unless you had some miles on it. Remember that the spare tire also has a pressure monitor as well. It most likely is causing the low tire pressure light on the dash and only needs to be inflated back to what ever your other tires are set to. I had the same problem on my RX and took it back to the dealership where they told me since the spare is exposed to the same elements (it's under the back of the RX - you have to use the tire iron to let the spare down), it will inevidably lose air.
