How to use a car air pump?

Step 1: Plug in the pump

To power your car tire air pump, you’ll first need to plug it into a power source. Car tire air pumps most commonly use your car’s outlet as a power source– it has enough power for the pump to run efficiently.

Step 2: Insert the nozzle

With the hose connected to the compressor, plug the other end into your car’s tire via the nozzle.

Step 3: Start pumping

Now that everything’s in place, you can start the compressor. Depending on the type of compressor you’re using you may need to follow different instructions, but the general idea is to pay close attention to the pressure value shown in the gauge/display and stop once it reaches the ideal level.
