Automotive Troubleshooting : How to Put Air in a Tire

Dave Erb here from Dave’s Ultimate Automotive,
and we are going to be talking about how to fill a tire with air. First thing you want
to do is get the tire valve stem in a good convenient position for you. Take the valve
stem cap off, get your air source, your air chuck and just put it on the valve stem firmly
and squarely, you don’t want to have it cockeyed. You can definitely screw up the valve inside
or not get air in it properly and you want to push in with some force in, you’ll hear
the air going into the tire. Sounds like a balloon blowing up. Get the proper amount
in, go ahead and check it with your gage, make sure you didn’t over inflate it. And
you just keep adding it to where you want it. Make sure you replace the valve stem cap
and avoid some slow leaks that way. And your done.
