I meant to say awhile back that you can actually replace that leaking valve. It unscrews off the line, if you choose to replace the valve make sure you don't overtighten it, A/C systems are sealed by o-rings so overtightening will only damage threads and that will end up leading to a big problem, anyways that valve is a high side valve you can pick one up for 6 bucks at autozone, I have two i keep as extras incase cause like i said mine was leaking but it doesn't leak anymore however my schrader valve on the low side is leaking but I won't replace the valve until the system is empty again. lucky for you your ac lines are aluminum while mine are steel so mine will rust away. but yea that valve you have that was leaking is replaceable.
