Hi Guys,

I am pulling my hair out on this one.

My A/C was "Warm" and I brought to sears for a recharge. They ran some dye through the A/C system and determined that one of the schrader valves is leaking.

There are 2 schrader valves (maybe more?), one towards the "front" of the engine and one towards the back left. The one towards the back is leaking. After purchasing the correct tool, I removed the schrader valve -- and its "bigger" than the one in the front.

After going to O'reilly auto parts they did not have the part. I went to the dealer and they said that they don't sell the schrader valve itself, rather sell the "line" for $190 that contains the schrader valve.

What a joke.

So.. my question.. does anyone know where I can purchase one of these $5 parts..

I am going to try a local junkyard but who knows if they would have it.

thanks!

-Rob

Not sure if maybe they're sealed in some way and that's why the dealership only sells it as a complete unit or they're just trying to rip you off. But, if you don't have any other luck, check http://car-part.com/ - they have them listed down to $25. Wink
