It was supposed to be a quick 15 minute trip to Kingdom Kids-- drop Isaiah off and then home, back to work.
I was distracted, and a bit concerned since my "low tire pressure" light had been on for several days. The last thing I needed was a flat tire, so I decided to take 5 minutes and stop at Sheetz to put air in my tire. This was my second mistake.
While I was tempted to calm my hunger pains with Elijah's leftover hot dog from "Home cooked Supper to Go" last night
after about forty minutes, my heroes arrive...
Shayne knew just what to do!
Once the tire was off, I drove it to Merchant's to get the valve replaced. Rex and Shayne stayed at Sheetz to hold the van in place... silly me stopped on a hill, so the van kept trying to roll off of the jack.
Initially, I was quiet distressed upon being told that due to our vehicle make- I couldn't just replace the stem, the entire sensor would need to be replaced. Only $79.99.... (insert panic here) Thankfully, the dude didn't have the right part, so he confessed that it could be repaired with a rubber valve- at no charge. Only drawback, that silly light that brought me here will remain on, warning me of low tire pressure until... well, until I fork out the $79.99 for the sensor. I can live with the light.
