2011 Honda Odyssey: Check Tire Pressure Warning
February 03, 2012
This guy greeted me as I fired up our 2011 Honda Odyssey Monday morning. Did I mention it was 5am and a crisp 48 degrees (hey, that's cold for us)? Anyhow, it wasn't fun.
A check of the tires showed Odyssey's right-front down 5psi as compared to the others. This is typically evidence of a leak. Fifty cents at the gas station compressor bought me 15psi, which gave me 10psi over spec were the issue significant.
I drove 40 miles to the office and rechecked the pressures. No air lost. So I dropped the tire back down another 5psi, keeping it 5psi over the recommendation for the sake of monitoring. This morning the right-front was 5psi over-filled, right where I left it. I dropped it back down to the correct amount and we'll continue to watch it.
