Had sleeve couplers on two cars and always had leaks no matter how I cleaned 
the pipes or how hard I tightened the couplers. In both cases I brought the 
car to a local Meineke shop and had them weld sleeves in place of the 
couplers. I forget what the cost was but I think it was around $60 total.
