Looked at intake valve had old cap got removed wondering if need new valve or something else. tried explainng issues to my mechanic but unable to find issue. Anyone as idea of what need to be done

AC dryer probably rusted through, so it leaks gasses out. Dryer is located on the passenger side of radiator. Assuming your car is left hand driven. No fault codes on shutting down period?
