Auto Repair & Maintenance : How to Put Air in a Tire


Hello my name is Tom Brintzenhofe, I’m a certified
master mechanic out at Reading, Pennsylvania
and today I’m going to show you how to put
air into your tire. Anytime you think you
got your tire a little bit low, the best thing
to do is just check it with your tire pressure
gage. It should be checked every time you
stop to put gas into your car and most of
us don’t have time to do that. But if you
ever get a chance to every once in a while,
before you go out on a little trip, just push
this little gage on here. This one is reading
about twenty seven pounds, the recommended
tire pressure is always on the side of the
tire, it’s usually marked in a little block
similar to this here. If you don’t find it
on the tire you can find it on the driver’s
side door on the label, that’s the correct
tire pressure for your vehicle. Now when you
pull into your local gas station, it has a
little pump there sometimes it’s free, a quarter,
fifty cents, what you’ll do is you turn it
on, push it up exactly the same way that this
tire pressure gage goes on your valve stem.
Push it in here fill it up, periodically you
want to stop, put your gage on to check it.
This one here is forty-four pounds, you just
fill it up until you get to forty-four pounds
on your gage somewhere right around here,
put your cap back on once you get it up to
pressure and you’re good to go.

  1. This guy is a Master Mechanic? He stated that the "recommended tire pressure is always on the side of the tire". This is absolutely WRONG! The recommended tire pressure for any tire that goes on the vehicle is determined by the manufacturer of the car. NOT the manufacturer of the tire. The reading on the tire show the PSI ranges that the tire can handle. The correct PSI level can be located either in your vehicle's manual or on a sticker inside your car's door.

  2. seriously dude, i just wasted 2 minutes of my life on such trivial non-sense — what balls on this "master" mechanic; he's more of a masturbator if you ask me.
