Tires

On my 2001 HR Imperial, when checking tire pressure, I can't get any reading on the left rear outside tire. It doesn't look flat, when I beat on the tire it feels tight, and I can't add air because it won't take any. It makes me nervous because I'm getting ready to go to Sycamore Lodge tomorrow. Oh, the tires aren't but about 6 monrhs old. What gives?

The valve is too far into the stem. Back it out a little and you shouldn't have a problem. Do you have a valve stem wrench?

The valve core may be screwed in to tight. Get a valve core tool at an auto parts store & back the core out until it leaks an d then screw it back in u til the leak stops. Then check pressure again.

Yup. Valve core too tight or defective.

There are different length valve cores. When they installed your new tires they either installed the wrong one or it was defective. Go back to the tire shop and have them fix it. Valve cores are supposed to be tight. I would never loosen one, it might cause a slow leak.
