Question about 1999 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Just wondering if there is a general tire psi for the 1999 honda accord V6. I have to put air in the tires but unfortunately the owner (mother) is away on vacay and I don't see the instruction manual.

What I do is read the maximum tire pressure on the sidewall of the tire.
Lets say it is 44#. Then I set my tires at 40# on the front and 36 or 38# on the rear.
The front has to hold the weight of the engine and trans and they are subject to suspension geometry design and tire wear, up and down hills and around corners.
The back is more a matter of handling. A smaller SUV may have less wheel hop in the back, if lower pressure than the front.

That has worked for me for over 40 years.
I get at least 70,000 miles on my tires on all vehicles and even wear all around.
A lot of tire rotation and checking pressures every six weeks helps.

If you go by the MFG owners manual or a pressure on the AorB Door pillar,you'll you will be under inflated and wear tires out quicker and have a pooerr handling vehicle and less safe one.
It's about the tire your running,not the vehicle. Get close to the max press on tire rating

The tire pressure should be on a sticker by the drivers door, if you can't find it there is a max pressure on the sidewall of the tires, set them close to that

How much air is supposse to be in the tire


How much air should be in a car tire?
According to Berger the maximum inflation pressure for modern tires is typically between 44 and 51 PSI (pounds per square inch). If a driver inadvertently puts too much air in a tire it won't necessarily cause any damage, but it will impact other aspects of the vehicle.

Tire sensor light comes on every so often pressure is right how do i turn light off crv 2010 honda


The trouble with Tire Pressure Sensors (TPS) is that they are in my opinion, too sensitive. Even a drop in tire pressure of 2 PSI seems to set them off. You may notice that the light comes on in the morning (when it's cool) but goes off after a short drive. Once your tires have warmed up (either from an outside temperature increase or by road friction) the air in the tire expands, increasing the tire pressure slightly, -usually satisfying the TPS and the light goes out.

I've used both of these methods to solve this issue: Get your tires filled with nitrogen (less expansion/contraction than air) or you could increase the tire pressure at the air filling station by few PSI.

Horseshoe type yellow warning light on BMW 3series suv..2008 model


As with Most Vehicles this is an Indication of 1 or more tires needing attended to. Generally speaking it is warning of a Low Tire Pressure.
Check (or have Checked) all the Tires for the specified Tire pressure and inflate to "Recommended" PSI as found on the Tires, (raised type lettering on Tire) closest to Rim/ Wheel.

If it is Low Pressure, with Economics as they are, have tires inflated to Maximum load can increase gas mileage

How much air should be fill in tires in honda accord 2002


Normally put 35 all around for all cars unless they are trailer tires or cars that need high pressure tires. Honda usually recomment 30-32 psi, but to me i think it is different when you get bigger rims because the side wall on a 65 and a 40 are totally different.

Have 1999 Mustang V6 with 15'' wheels. There is no sticker for tire pressure. Owner's manual says to see sticker. Ford tech support website says info no longer available?! What pressure should I use?


check the max pressure rating on your tires. Itill be hard to see but you will find it around the beed near the tire size. I would put them about 5 psi lower than the max rating to be safe. I would gess somewear around 35 to 45 psi.

try cleaning your air filter and running some fuel system cleaner through it to to clean the carb.also check the O2 sensor. Things to check/try in order to improve fuel mileage on almost any vehicle:1) Tire Pressures. Are tire pressures no lower than manufacturer recommendation? Remember to check tire pressure in the morning (when cold), and that a 10 degree (Farenheit) drop in outside air temperature will decrease tire pressure by about 1 psi. Also, some tires, especially older ones, may "leak" up to 1 psi per month. If pressures are too low, try to visit a station near home, and put in 3 or 4 more psi than you want - after a few hours or next morning, check pressures and bleed any extra pressure. Why: tires may read 3 or 4 psi higher after a few miles' use vs when cold.
2) Alignment. May need alignment. Can't really tell without putting it on an alignment rack, unless it's pretty bad, in which case you may see uneven wear (especially on front tires).
3) Brakes. One or more brakes may be sticking (especially front). I've had this happen on BOTH our vehicles.
4) Bearings. One or more wheel bearings may be binding/failing (unlikely, but possible).
5) Oil. Are you using 5W30 oil in cold weather and 5W30 or 10W30 in hot weather? Changing oil AND FILTER regularly (at least as often as manual says)?
5) Vacuum hoses. Check that all vacuum hoses are secured and intact.
6) PCV. Replace PCV valve (as you face engine from front, it's way in the back left corner, almost as far as you can reach; narrow space so it's a bit tedious to change, but no tools required - about $5).
7) Wires. Are ignition wires in good shape (ie, no cracks, etc.)?
8) Other. One or more engine accessories (alternator, power steering pump, air conditioner, water pump, etc.) may be binding (unlikely but possible).
9) Heating and Air conditioning will have a lot on fuel consumptions in addition to driving habits, city driving or highway driving. A big difference in fuel consumptions when driving 60mph (~100kmph) and 80mph (~130kmph) on highways.

Tire pressure optimization setting


Look for a sticker on the drivers door panel. It will tell you what pressure to set for the tires. The owners manual may also contain this information. It is normal for a radial tire to look a little flat.
