The only way that would happen is if the screw in the shrader valve is loose, would need to be tightened. Or there may be some debris that has caused the valve to be depressed and that is why its leaking

I dont know if it will work cause it might be a different size, but a tool to remove the screw, I dont know the right name, in the middle of the schrader valve might be the same tool as some tires shops use to remove air quickly from a tire. Or it could be the size that is used with the Air conditioning.

Yes, it's the same tool as the tire valves.

I used to remove that valve on other cars to use for fuel feed when installing nitrous kits. =)
