    AIR Check Valve Won't Come loose

    Is there a trick to unscrewing the AIR check valve off of the tube? Mine doesn't want to budge. I sprayed liquid wrench and let it soak, still nothing. If I pull any harder on the wrenches, it seems like I'll mess up the hex nuts!

    It was pretty warm from driving, but I didn't try heating the threads with a torch. I have one of those plumbing type propane torches, maybe I'll try that.

    pull the tube off the car and put in in a vise then remove it.They get stuck on hard enough that you may break something off if you don't do in in a vise.Put high temp antisieze on the new one so the next time they will remove easily.
