How To Fix A Slow-Leaking TireJohn Wolfe, Buffalo Head Prairie, Alberta: “To fix a slow-leaking tire, first remove the valve stem core. Then using either a tiny funnel or a cheap plastic syringe, add about a half can of carbonated soda into the tire. It doesn’t matter whether it’s Coke or Pepsi or another flavor, just be sure to use carbonated sugar water. After reinstalling the valve stem core, fill the tire to the proper psi and take the vehicle for a short drive. As you’re driving, centrifugal force will cause the soda to escape through the slow-leak point. The soda then solidifies, sealing the tire. I’ve used this method on 5 different tires with 100 percent success.”
