Replace these schrader valves?

Postby atikovi » Tue Jul 11, 2017 3:10 pm


2008 Volvo. When I remove the caps, sniffer goes off when I stick the nose close to the opening. $6 each from the dealer. And should the cap o-rings be replaced too? No leak found with the caps attached.

I'd replace the schraeders since they're already out. Like others have found out: the CAP is the real seal.
