I caught a nail in a tire, and it resulted in a flat last night. I used the tire sealant that came with my '16 Volt, and it worked well. Made the 60 mile journey back home, and kept the pressure at 38 psi.

Tire shop cleaned up the sealant in the tire, and patched the tire for free. The TPMS was ok.

So now I'm searching through different sites for the replacement tire sealant. I couldn't find anyone selling it.
Aside from the dealer, does anyone know where I can get this? It looks like a white bottle with a silver braided hose.

If you can post the link, that would be great.

I don't recall is being all that much at my dealer and keep a check on storage life.

About one a year I click the switch back and forth then leave in the AIR only position.

Others have reported a little of the glue can leak and gum up the switch.

Why not just keep things simple and go to the autoparts store and just buy a regular can of fix-a-flat to keep on hand? likely far cheaper than going to the dealership just to get a can with a GM part number and fancy GM box.

I dunno... it might have to do with compatibility with the TPMS. I've heard that some goos wreak the TPMS. Are you feelin' lucky today, Pal? -in my best Clint Eastwood delivery.:p

I'd skip the sealant. Causes too many problems for me personally. I carry a plug kit and the on board compressor.
I put a spare kit together for longer trips as well.

I had to use mine in my new 2017 over the weekend. I also carry a plug kit however I was unable to locate the leak so I used the latex sealant. I ordered a replacement at the dealership and can post the part number later tonight. It's also available at GM Parts Direct dot com, however you have to be careful to order the correct one for your inflater.

I was under the impression they were all now TPMS safe which is why I suggested going that route.

I will admit though that I HATE using that stuff, and tire places loath dealing with it as well and if it's known to have it will usually give it to the "new guy" and conveniently forget to tell them.

Last year, I saw an AirMan ResQ Pro+ for sale at Woot. It was only $35 for the goo and compressor and bag. As a retail product, it looked a little nicer than what GM gives us, but it's probably the same, since as someone mentioned, they think AirMan makes the kit for GM.

Just an FYI - on eBay, part 23119009 can be purchased from partsplus for $21.12 delivered. This is the OEM product.

And you can get Fix-a-Flat for about $7.

Of course, but, I've seen people post on this site that they ha trouble when they used non GM tire sealant. Being new, don't know if to believe that or not. What I read was people used a non GM product, it ruined the TPMS, and, got charged to replace that as well, whereas, when using the GM sealant, presumably you would not have a warranty issue. Any comment as to whether or not that is still an issue?

Presumably I believe is the key word here. My experience outside of a B2B warranty and getting things covered like this is that they almost always find a way to worm out of covering damage caused by something like this. Even something as simple as a nick in the wheel from something that happened months ago is the cause of failure. They always will find some reason to indicate their product didn't cause the failure. I would be interested to find others who were outside of their B2B, used the approved sealant canister, had a TPMS sensor failed because of the goo AND replaced at no charge. Pretty sure that's not going to be the typical case.

FYI I received the replacement canister from the dealer today. I can confirm its the correct part number I posted prior, for the one you described.

I'm personally going to go ahead and order a 2nd as a spare from GMPartsDirect.com; it's only $19. I didn't like driving for a week without it given the number of miles I drive.

Did the GM recommended part work? Website says it's not the right one:

Assuming the parts department at the dealership ordered the correct one, the part number is 23119009 per the invoice. I'll confirm when I receive it.

gmpartsdirect.com/oe-gm/23119009

Hi Off Oil, when I followed the parts link and plugged in 2017 Volt, the parts system returned, " This part does not fit your 2017 Chevrolet Volt"

How did it actually work out for you? Was it compatible?
