Leaky High side AC service port

    Does anybody know if someone makes a cap or adaptor that could be used
    to seal the core of the high side service port? I have a 96 Plymouth
    Grand Voyager 3.3L with front and rear air. the AC isn't working very
    good so while checking it out I noticed the high side port was
    leaking. The core seems to be made out of rubber, and it's a big job
    to replace the whole line. Thanks, Dave

    A pack of 5 Schrader cores (including two plastic valve wrenches)
    costs me $2.49 at United Refrigeration. However, if you want to
    replace the valve with the system charged, then you're going to need a
    Robinaire or Yellow Jacket core replacer tool, about $50 and up, but a
    worthwhile investment if you're going to do even moderate service
    work. Schrader cores, especially on the high side nearest the
    compressor, harden and leak more often than not.

    Thanks for the info, but like I stated this dosn't look like a normal
    schrader valve. The low side looks like a normal valve. This is brown
    and looks like rubber.
