Question about Cycling
The position of the valve will not have any bearing on the speed of the leak - the pressure inside the tire will dictate that. Check the valve core - the inner workings of the stem. Make certain that is is tightly screwed in (clockwise). Also if you can remove the tire, check for a nail or a puncture hole - a cup of soapy water (dish soap) is all you need - mix it thick. Pour it on the suspect area and look for bubbles - they will be small based on the amount of air you are losing each week. Also check around the perimiter of the rim (the bead). Allloy wheels are notorious for leaking around the bead - particularly if it has been bent.

you can get this by yourself, just follows the following steps...
Finding a tire leak can help stop a gradual reduction of air pressure in your tires from a slow leak, that could leave you stranded with an unexpected flat tire. Follow these suggestions to find minor tire leaks that could cause major problems.
Tools and Materials:
You may have a tire with a slow leak without realizing it. Use a reliable tire inflation pressure gauge to check the air pressure of all 4 tires regularly. If you notice that one is always lower than the others, you may have a slow leak.
