Is it a screw on stem or a regular one with a grommet?

If you take some paper towel and wrap it around the grommet and place it in the stem. If it still leaks you can use a piece of wet paper towel or cardboard.

To see if you have a good steal you can cover the top of the stem with your hand and blow in your hose to check for leaks instead of setting up and finding out you have a leak.

dont use duct tape...

put some electrical tape on the part of your stem where your grommet would be (it sounds to me like your grommet may be too small) and then put the grommet on over the tape

Then, when you get the required funds, purchase a new base grommet. It will be a good investment I promise. My stem is getting a little loose in my base right now, it seems I will have to purchase a new base grommet in the near future. Grommets don't last forever, don't forget to replace

very good advice, but its hard to get the right grommet size online. especially with the wide variety of sizes in stems
