JIMDTS Posted July 11, 2005 Report Share Posted July 11, 2005 WHat a frick'n morning. I went to the dealer and they had no power so they were doing their best to to get things going. So I figured I would leave and come back later. In the mean time I stopped for gas at a gas station that has one of those cheap compressors to air up a tire that had a 2 pound split from the rest of the tire. NOW the fun starts I put the air chuck on the tire and the valve stem sticks in air is coming out and the stem is really stuck the tire is going flat and the compressor can't keep up the the escaping air. So I stick the air chuck back on and I'm hoping for the best airing the tire well now water is blowing from the air chuck as the compressor is building up pressure which in this case help it freed up the stuck stem and I managed to get 25 psi to limp back to the dealer and one of the mechanic's changed the valve stem and serviced the tire with a break down tank.. Moral of the story check those valve stems I'm going to change the other 3 stems so this sh-- does not happen again. I was surprised that the valve stems were brass which had corrosion on the stem itself which caused it to stick..these stems and wheels are less than a year old....
