I have one wheel and...

Did they dip tank the tire to see where it was leaking from?

I believe
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
They told me they checked it

So they pulled the wheel off and placed the wheel and tire into a tank and submerged the wheel and tire?

Could it be inflated to 33psi. Is as large as it gets. Leaks and gets smaller

Would you be bale to pull the wheel off so we can check it for a leak?

I know

You will need to air the tire up to 42 psi, then add about 8 inches of water to your bath tube. After the water has run and fill the tub, add some dish washing liquid to the water and stir it in good. The set the wheel into the tub and slowly roll the tire into the water. If there is a leak in the tire or wheel, you will see bubbles coming out of the pace it is leaking from.

The extra air will help to push air out of the hole, sense there is no pressure of the vehicle on the tire.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
