Default A/C Schrader Valve Problem - How to Remove?

Hi all,

I have an '07 Reno that I recently have been able to figure out has a bad valve and leaks any new coolant I put into it. So, I went and got a kit with the tool and four new Schrader valves to remove the broken one and insert a new one. However, the tool does not work, it doesn't get a bite on the valve (it does work on the tire valves, though).

Has anyone experienced the same problem? Is this valve different than a Schrader valve and I must do something else? It's getting into the 80-degree range here in New York now and will go crazy if I can't get this fixed soon.

All suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

It sounds like the Schrader is booger'd up.

If the leak isn't huge, you should be able to cap it with a quality cap that has a seal within it.
It would be an inexpensive attempt at least.

This style cap...



Is it on the low pressure (cold) side? That would be a plus.

Apart from the normal valve tools, needle nosed pliers usually works - although it can be kind of hard on the pliers (they are not designed to apply a twisting force and can end up with the nose twisted).
