Ford Escape: Using the Tire Sealant and Inflator Kit / Tips for use of the kit. What to do when a tire is punctured

Tips for use of the kit

To ensure safe operation of the kit:

  • Before operating the kit, make sure your vehicle is safely off the road and away from moving traffic.
  • Do not remove any foreign objects, such as nails or screws, from the tire.
  • Do not allow the compressor to operate continuously for more than 15 minutes. This will help prevent the compressor from overheating.
  • Only use the kit when the ambient temperature is between -22°F (-30°C) and 158°F (70°C).
  • Only use the sealing compound before the use-by date. The use-by date is on a label on the sealant canister and can be seen through the rectangular viewing window on the bottom of the compressor. Check the use-by date regularly and replace the canister when the sealant expires.

Note: Sealant compound contains latex. Use appropriate precautions to avoid any allergic reactions.

What to do when a tire is punctured

  • A tire puncture within the tire's tread area can be repaired in two stages with the kit.
  • In the first stage, the tire will be reinflated with a sealing compound and air. After the tire has been inflated, you will need to drive the vehicle a short distance approximately 4 mi (6 km) to distribute the sealant in the tire.
  • In the second stage, you will need to check the tire pressure and adjust, if necessary, to the vehicle's specified tire inflation pressure.
