Question about 2008 Lexus Rx 350
This particular valve stem is aluminum.It is sealed with a gasket on the inside.If it is leaking,have the gasket.If the valve stem core is leaking,you can have it tightened up or you can get a tool to do it yourself.But be careful,they are fragile.If those 2 aren't the problem,then a new valve stem might need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Front tires leak air daily.
i dont remember the 95 caddy with pressure monitors id say try your valve stems or the valves themselves to make sure that they are tight. replace any stem caps that are missing.

Dunk this tire so you know where the leak is coming from to start with so you know how to address the repair needed. Many shops will charge you and extra $10 for having to deal with that slime stuff. The fix a flat is not a repair.

Replace the valve stem or have it replaced. There is a special tool to unscrew the valve stem. Remove the wheel and tire from the car and depress the pin in the stem to release the air in the tire. When you have about 90% of the air out of the tire, insert the tool into the stem an turn counterclockwise to remove. After you install the new valve stem, get a ride to a gas station that offers free air and fill the tire up. As long as the tire is still seated to the lip of the rim (check just for your safety but I very highly doubt it unseated from the rim) and fill the tire to the cold psi rating which is stamped on the sidewall of the tire. If you want to check the tire itself for a slow leak prior to doing the steps above, here is what to do. Get a pan or plastic tub that is sightly wider and longer than the tire and rim. Fill the tub with water and set them it in the water (while it is still filled with air) and slowly roll the tire in place and look for small air bubbles to rise. If you see bubbles, there is a leak.
