My front left tire losing pressure quickly, should I inflate it to 45 psi?

My front left tire looks flat the pressure reads 20 psi while other 3 tires are in recommended pressure. I just put air on all 4 tires last month. 

Update:

All 4 tires where new 4 months ago btw.

    Take your car into a mechanic or tire place and have them look at the tire seal, the bead, and the integrity of the rim. Have them check the TPS sensor. NEVER overinflate a tire, or try to. You don't want to know what happens to a person who is near when a tire explodes.

    You need to find the leak and see if it can be fixed, or it needs to be replaced.

    Don't inflate the tire more then 35 PSI.The tire that's leaking needs to be taken off the rim and resealed.

    Slap 40PSI in it and go to a tire store(like the one you have been at before) Tell them your story.  They will take off the wheel clean the rim with a wire brush and then grease the rim with tire grease and slap that puppy back together and check for a bead leak. Or a nail puncture. They will fix that too, but it sounds more like a bead leak meaning it was not put on properly. May be free.(because they are the ones that put on the tires on the rims)  If it is a puncture, maybe a 10 spot will cover the cost of repair.

    A smart person would get the leak fixed. It's apparent that you aren't

    That is silly and dangerous. Go to a tire shop and have the tire checked for a leak and then patched.

    Get the tire repaired at a tire shop.  Over-inflating runs the risk of a total blow out.

    No, you should get it repaired.
