    I think that it may be the valve. The same thing was happening to my old tire. Will this be expensive?

Could be a couple things, I'd look at either a bad valve stem or to see if the bead is leaking. Take a spray bottle with some soapy water in it and spray it on the valve stem and all along the inside and outside beads. If you see bubbling anywhere that's where the air is leaking out. Any chance you may have run over a nail or something on the way home?

Have a load test done on the battery to check for dead cell as what you describe fits that problem profile. New is a relative term as either brand new or new to you (second hand)

You may have the well known Windstar syndrome (one of them at any rate). If you use the rear heater-air conditioner and leave the blower on you will kill the battery. Ford issued a service bulletin to correct the problem. It took four battery replacements to get my 2000 Windstar working right

A locksmith can make you a new key. Mobile locksmiths operate 24 hrs a day and can provide you with an estimate of cost to make a new key. Some car dealers are able to cut a new key with the key code that came with the van or the VIN number, provided the locks are original.

Flat tire


There are several causes of a flat:
You may have a puncture. If you've a large tub which can fit the tire, submerge it into the tub and look for bubbles (signifies the source of the leak). else you can pour water over the tire and look (closely) for signed of bubbles forming.
  1. You can patch it (which tire dealers frown upon since they'd recommend that you purchase another tire right away) if you're only using it for short trips, or
  2. you can do what dealers recommend and purchase new tires (they usually recommend purchasing in pairs of 2 or 4 to ensure even grip on both sides).
  3. if you're halfway during a trip, you may be interested in one of those tire foam products which temporarily seals the leak till your next repair
Or you may have driven over something hard (e.g. pot holes) and bent your rims. This may also cause tires to leak and eventually run flat. If that's the case, I wouldn't recommend bending it back unless the rims has sentimental value (assuming you're running OEM rims) - I'd say it's time for a new rim replacement (or even a set of new aftermarket rims) ;-)
