Question about 2008 Saturn Aura
I recently had my car in for repairs which included replacing 2 wheels and 2 tires and the front end suspension. When I got the car back last week I noticed that I could see the brake drum through the hub-caps. I had never noticed this before and I started wondering if this is right or did they just leave the covers off. I have not been able to find any pictures that actually show the wheels and tires in detail. Also all the tires are losing air. When I picked up the car the tire pressure was 42 and 43 pounds. This morning 1 tire was at 23 pounds and the others were 38 to 39 pounds. What should I do?
As all Saturn Auras have four wheel disc brakes, I'll assume that you are referring to the rotor and/or caliper. The rotor is is a shiny disc that is a few inches smaller in diameter than your wheel. The caliper is a cast metal part with dull finish that rides on top of the disc.
You can relax, they didn't leave anything off. The wheel cover and wheel are a five spoke design that is meant to show these off. You're having a common reaction after auto repair: hypersensitivity.
As for the tire pressure, to confirm that the tires are losing air, set the pressure to the PSI on the label on the drivers door when the tires are cold (sitting all night or not driven very far). Check the pressures again after the car has been sitting for a long time. Again, morning is best. If you are losing pressure in one or more tire, take it to a professional for inspection. The problem could be as simple as a leaky valve.
