Hey shdeal,
Taking some air out of a tire depends on the type of valve you have:
If it looks like this: http://practicalbiking.org/wordpress/files/2010/05/2010_05_01_Schrader_valve_no_cap_DSC_7546.jpg It's called a Shrader valve. Simply press down on the little rod inside the valve using a fingernail or screwdriver or pin. Be careful though! The air comes out pretty fast!
But if it looks like this: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2451/3882019093_918afc6b97.jpg It's called a Prest valve. You'll need to loosen counter-clockwise the small brass knob at the end of the valve stem. When tightened, it ensures no air can leak from it, and makes a good seal. But when loosened, you can just press on it to let a bit of air out. Remember to tighten it back up once your done though!
Hope this helps you! -The Chicken

HOW TO RESET TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT IN A 2010 CHRYSLER SEABRING


The sensor in the tires takes a battery and the battery might be bad or the tires were filled with air that has too much water vapor in it and the sensor is affected by the water.

Why is my air pressure low in front but high in back on my 05 town and country


depends on how often you check tire pressures. you could over time be loosing air by it leaking out around the tire bead, or the tires hitting a curb or pot hole that can cause air to leak, a dirty rim may need to be cleaned or someone is keeping the pressures the same that is noted on the decal on the drivers door jam. I trust you have used a good tire gage and not just looking at the tires, as there is more weight on the front tires than the rear and the front will look like they are lower in pressure.

Back rear tires are wobbly due to uneven air in tires. Some of the tubbing is coming out of the wheel.


Be ready, this is a little bit of a dirty job, have rags handy..
What you need to do is coax the tube back inside the tire, without damaging it. Use hands only, no screwdrivers or other tools.

Sometimes letting all of the air out helps, some air back in helps...but you need to wind up with the tube fully inside the tire and NOT at all in the tire bead to rim area. This is where the add air helps...
When you achieve the above steps, you need to ensure that the tire bead (the part that actually touches the wheel) is even and seated all the way around. INSIDE and OUT... Then add air and often check that the tire bead is still correctly located inside the wheel. (What happens is the bead goes deep into the rim on one side, and that allows the tire to go clear past the wheel on the other side...Just center everything..)
Then blow the tire up to the correct pressure. I think you want to be a little on the high side, as the tires need to be able to roll with low resistance, and that takes pressure.
I hope this helps. Check all of the other tires for issues and pressure and cruise on.

I BOUGHT A LIBERTY JEEP TERRAIN JOGGER STROLLER ABOUT 3 DAYS AGO, TOOK IT ON A TEST TO SIX FLAGS AND HAD A FLAT. HOW DO I FIX THE FLAX. DID NOT SEE WHERE I CAN PUT AIR IN IT. PLEASE HELP!


  • There is a place to add air on the inside of the wheel (rim) of the tire. The problem would be will it hold air.
  • First get a tire pressure gauge and check the air in one of the two good tires to get a good pressure on it.
  • I must caution that if you use a compressor to air it up you will blow the tire in about two seconds. So use a standard foot bike tire pump. It airs up on the little valve stem sticking out from the inside of the wheel (see diagram)
  • Should the tire not hold air then you will patch it just like a standard bike tire. Follow these steps.
  1. First put some air in the tire.
  2. Now get some soapy water and splash it liberal on the tire in and note where the air is leaking from.
  3. Put your thumb on the leak and mark the hole clearly with some chalk. Drawing a small circle around the leak works best.
  4. First the nut on the bolt on the side of the wheel has a lock pin that needs to come out. Straiten it with a pair of pliers and then pull it out.
  5. Now remove the nut with a wrench or socket.
  6. now pull the bolt out.
  7. Now the wheel will come out of the fork. Mind the placement of the washers as they need to go back where they are upon reassemble.
  8. Now let all the air out of the tire by pushing on the end of the valve stem and pressing on the tire.
  9. Now take a flat screwdriver and gently wedge it between the wheel and tire and walk the tire off the rim.
  10. Now do the same withe the remaining side until the tire is off the wheel completely.
  11. Now use a standard tire patch and repair the leak.
  12. Now reverse to get the tire back on the wheel and the wheel back on the stroller.
  13. Air tire to proper pressure.
  14. Job complete.
  15. I have also included a picture of where to fill the tire from.

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.

Good luck.
