I can’t fig out the valve stem set up on my 98 Mazda. There are small caps on the rim. Removing them there is a valve no stem. How or what is used to put air in it. Is there a tool. I acquired it after my girlfriend husband passed away. ( wait he passed away 1st then she became my girlfriend ) car starts and runs. Been sitting 4 years. All 4 tires are soft. Need air please help.

The valves are exactly the same as a mountain bike tyre valve. Take the caps off and use either a good hand (stirrup) pump or a compressor to inflate the tyres.

I can’t connect my compressor to the strater valve ( air valve ) . I work at Lowes. I sell compressors and accessories. Nothing will allow me to connect it
Is there an adapter? This all that is preventing me from driving it. The tires are flat. You say bicycle pump. My bike has a rubber tube sticking out of the rim. This is below the rim in a hole.

Take a wheel off and take it to a tyre workshop and see if they can help, I can't solve that from here.
