What's the prob, guys?
Sounds like the sealant sealed your valve. Clean or replace the valve.

remove the valve core and push something through the open valve to remove any sealant that might be clogging it. an old spoke, a toothpick, or something like that should do the job. the process takes 30 seconds, there's probably nothing wrong with your tires.
