Then when I went to replace it I took it off the top of my compressor was broken. Well I figured id replace the valve anyway and when I got the new one on I had to go to the gas station to fill up I figured everything was going to be great. Well it wasn't, after I refilled the bags I got the spray bottle out and started looking for the leak, well turns out the new check valve was also leaking. So I decided to get a cap after I got the system re-sealed I filled it again and there is still a leak somewhere. I'm almost ready to rip the whole thing out and blow it up. Anyone have any ideas before I get the explosives out?
Mine leaks too. I have checked the fittings and had to replace one of them. I think it is the Schroeder valve. Unfortunately I have to take the dash apart to access it. I'm not a fan of these push lock fittings. I will probably switch to compression fittings.

I've already had to replace the compressor. TLC replaced it without any issues. I had a friend make a box to out the compressor in so it would be out of the weather.

Make sure your lines are cut perfectly straight.
