The short answer is yes, you can just change the tire. I recently had a
similar problem and had to perform the same procedure, changing the tire.
However, you must change only the right front, then inflate it properly.
You must inflate using human air, not from a service station.
Remember to blow hard, as I'm sure you know.
My mechanic told me that my engine is bad and needs to be replaced.
The cost is more than I paid for the car. Can I avoid the cost by
just changing one of the tires instead of the engine?
