View Full Version : tire valve core problem

04-13-2005, 09:16 PM
I have been losing air at the rate of about 5 psi every couple weeks. Been going and putting air in, but that is a task in itself. I know the valve core needs tightened or loosened since when I am putting air in alot still comes out. I have a tire valve tool I just wondered if anyone knows whether my situation means I need to screw the valve core in or out?
Thanks, Tim

Screw the valve core in tighter.. However it might not be sealing around the poppet portion of the valve. That would require replacement.

You can squirt a little water, dish soap or WD40 in there to see if it's leaking.
