Default figuring out the source of my problems

I'm looking for some input on a couple of things I want to fix on my car. Recently I have had more road noise then usual and slight vibration on acceleration and have been loosing tire pressure in my left front tire. Not sure what this could be, I am thinking it is something with the alignment or balance. Before that I have a squeeky belt and I believe that it is the power steering that is effected and maybe this could cause the low tire pressure?

A squeeky belt hasn't nothing to do with tire pressure. But if your tire is low on air pressure it can cause stress on your power steering and in turn might cause a squeeky belt. So get you tire fixed and go from there.

ok, but what would cause the road noise and slight vibration on acceleration and at highway speed? It has been happening recently and I have 35 psi in the bad tire right now.

maybe your tire is out of balance or look for bubbles on the sidewalls, one of them might have a broken belt. when you go to get the air pressure problem looked at see if they will check the balance on them.

Check the tyre walls as well, i had a cracked wall and that resulted in a slow puncture.

swap ur front wheels with ur back, to see if this cures ur problem, if so, youve narrowed it down to ur wheels/tyres.
