Well that and it was a pain to fool with from under the car.

Factoring in the cost :

$40 crappy snap ring pliers set
$15 Freon
$15 valve
Gas to go get Freon and valve.

So $70 in parts and the royal pain of fooling with the compress from under the car.

New compressor which I had to buy anyways because the valve didn't fix it was $110 or so.

So a bit more and you have a new compressor and piece of mind.

Its just not worth it to fool with the valve. If the valves toast then the compressor isn't that far off. New compressor has new valve.

Most compressors bought on-line are either refurbish or made in China.
