Hi, I'm Ray Thomas. I'm the owner Ray's Auto Repair. Today, I am going to show you how to fill air in the tire on the car. So, first of all, what you do is you find the valve stem on the tire. And usually there's a cap. It's a dust cap, keeps the dust off. And there's a valve inside. So, what you do is if you have a pressure gage first you measure the pressure like so. And then it tells you how many pounds it has. Now, in case if it's low, you need to fill it with air. In that case you get a nozzle, go to any gas station or auto repair shop and you just kind of put it in. And there's a gage on that as well. So, what you do if it's low, you just pump some air in it and then you know you got to figure out though how much air pressure it takes. Usually you can find that information on the pillar post between the two doors, the left side. You open the door and usually there's the information it tells you how many PSI it takes. Usually it's around 35 PSI. So, what you do is you make sure that it's the right PSI. And then once you are done you just close this cap and then you're done. That's how you fill car tires with air.
