Epiphany Dropping shots

So I've had my Epiphany for a year. It was never messed up before and it worked perfectly fine. I got an Etek 3 like 2 months ago and tried to use my epiphany but it didn't work. The pressure goes down after the first shot and therefore the gun will not a ball out,but balls will still be shot and stuck into the barrel. I feel a leak of air coming from the ¿grip frame? My epiphany is messed up where only one of the two (I think it 5/32 not sure) and the screw in the front of the bolt where you screw in the barrel. I think it might be the regulator but I'm not sure. I HAVE CHANGED THE BATTERIES 3 TIMES BRAND NEW BATTERIES SO THAT'S NOT IT! Please help me? I'm gonna use this a gun for friends that wanna play with me.

Yessir I've cleaned and lubed the gun a lot though the problem was an o-ring, I replaced mostly all of them and lubed. I'll switch out the hosing and hope it's that.

Hits like 160 or 170, then goes straight to like 120. The bullets don't come out the barrel they get stuck after that.

are you using any of the chamber inserts? if so take it out, they really aren't needed. Then increase the dwell a little bit. Betcha that fixes your problem.

your regulator needs to be cleaned and lubed, stick another reg in there and try to make sure , i bet it will be fine if you put your etek reg in there to try it

This same problem happened to me when I had my qev installed. The tech set the dwell down to 12, and it did the same exact thing: the first shot is good, then the others just get lined up in the barrel. What I did was increase the dwell and it fixed the problem completely.

Ok so I changed the dwell to 18(20 clicks from reset) and tried out my gun. Didn't work again. I think I was mistaken when I said the gun doesn't shot well the balls stay in the barrel. Why I say that is because I took of the barrel was firing with the eyes off balls inside the chamber and it would not move. I believe the bolt is stuck somehow now?

If your gun does not have a qev, raise the dwell to the stock setting and see how it shoots. 20 clicks would be still too low of a dwell for a gun without a qev.
