Sounds like your CVV is shot, and needs replacing. Not a particularly difficult job if you`re mechanically inclined, but it IS a pain in the ass to get to, due to it`s location. Plan on 6 or 7 hours (pros can knock it out in 3 or so), the valve & hoses (replace ALL attendant hoses, they become brittle and will crumble in your hands as you`re working on it) will cost around $200, indie shops typically charge $500-ish for parts & labor.
