The tires use a standard tire fill valve, no special parts needed. If the tire is very flat, you will have to hang on tight to the stem to keep it from falling into the rim. You may prefer a clipdown type handpump for the first bit of air, but if the bead (the joint between the rubber and the rim had caved in, you will need to be a little tricky to get the first air in without it leaking out the sidewall. A rope cinched up around the outside of the tire helps to push the bead tight while you first fill.
It is a good idea to inspect the valve to make sure it pushes down and springs back up, as a broken valve will drive you nuts and make you think you are using the wrong adapter. G'luck:) Farmerbear at

Car wont start but cranks

Did you check for fuel to the injectors? Look around your injectors for the bleeder valve, it looks kind of like a tire valve, stick a small screw driver in it and push down on the valve, if fuel doesn't squirt out then you are not getting fuel to the engine. That could be your fuel pump fuse/relay or the fuel pump itself.

1992 V6 toyota pickup ac recharge is not accepting the refrigerant

If you are using the small cans, remember to screw the valve in all the way to punture the can, and then turn it out to fill the ac. If it won't accept any, it's either full, or the valve is plugged. Push the valve with a nail or something to see if anything comes out, like you would to flatten a tire.

The compressor continues to run but no air enters the tire, the tire just seems to get more and more flat.

Hi, I suspect the plunger for the valve stem connector on the pressure head is not depressing the air release pin in the head of the valve stem.

I have a Black and Decker and have to use a valve stem seat removal tool to quicky unscrew about 3 to 4 turns the stem seal and then connect the air hose head. After the tire reaches the correct air pressure I have go thru the tighten the valve stem seat drill.

You can buy the vavle stem seat tool at any auto parts store. I keep mine with the compressor.

I don't want this to sound bad but... is the air hose supply vavle turned on? Some have a slider button on the valve you have to push to charge the hose. If the hose is charged then see above.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My accu-gage tire gage does not hold tire pressure reading. the dial drops slowly down to zero.

If there is a button you push to release the pressure (resetting the gage to zero), this is a valve which probably has a little piece of dirt impeding the seal of that valve. The dirt would have been carried there by the air and condensation. But don't take it apart to clean it. This is a typical problem with these kinds of gages. When you have plenty of air available (a compressor nearby) hold the gage on the valve stem, while you repeatedly push the release button. That should clear the dirt, but you may need to add more air to the tire.

What kind of pump is used to pump the front tire?

I had the same problem. You have to take off the front tire, pull the red cap back along the pedal to expose the black valve cap. Unscrew the cap (needle nose pliers came in handy) and use a small flathead screwdriver to pop off the white plate that covers the hub of the tire. Unscrew the 4 screws that hold the metal plate over the actual tire valve and then you should be able to pump up the tire.

It took me about 5 minutes to get it apart and then back together...why did they have to make it so hard????

The tires are flat

You need to purchase an adapter which pushes onto the valve (so it doesn't depress the valve stem) and the other end is a standard screw fix to a bicycle pump.

Any good bicycle store stocks them.

The valve you are desrcibing is pretty standard on racing type bicycles.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.

Flat tire

started my bike and tried pushing out of its parking spot and it was super hard to push. I look at the rear tire and what do you know it's flat. I only have 2275 on my bike and still have some pretty big chicken strips. I checked the whole tire and there is no sign of puncture, cracks or damage of any kind. I called the dealership and they want $359 to pick it up and fix it.  I rode it yesterday afternoon and it was fine. I havn't checked to see if it hold air yet. I still need a air compressor.,check the valve stem, if the valve stem is bad then you can just replace that and pump it up. Go to the nearest place that does tires and ask how to tell if a valve stem is bad and how much it would be to fix it. Shouldn't be much. Maybe $20 and only takes a few minutes.,,,
