Hi everyone,

I was doing my monthly tire pressure checkup today, and when I screwed off the valve cap on one of the tires I saw that the tire valve was plugged with a strange wax-like substance! Does anyone know what this is? It's preventing me from pumping the tires. The car - a 2001 Saab 93 - was in maintenance at the shop in recent weeks, could they have put this red stuff in there for some reason? Or did the red substance come from some other place?

Please see the attached images. Thanks in advance.

Jason

Could it be puncture sealer?
The stuff you put into the tyre via the valve that seals the tyre in the event of a puncture.
