Q: Driver's side dropping down

asked by on

The front driver's side drops down and I can hear an air leak.

This sounds like you may have a flat tire. When a tire is flat it is unsafe to drive as it greatly increases the risk of a tire blowout when driving. I recommend taking your vehicle to a tire shop to have the tire repaired or having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to install a spare tire for you.
