The most common reason for that is debris inbetween your solenoid and solenoid-gasket.

Another reason could be that your LPR somehow overpressurized the noid and it moved the gasket out of place.

The gasket is this tiny little plastic that seals between your solenoid and the solenoid housing.

Either way if th eleak persists ; thats your best bet. You'll have to unscrew the solenoid and reseat the gasket with a new light coat of lube.

P.S. In some cases the RAM seal goes bad and one of th eysmptoms is solenoid leaks. This is rarer, however.

Hope this helps,

Cheers

I am having a similar problem with my system x xonik. It leaks from what seems like the gasket, but replacing it with another did nothing. It does not put pressure on the ram as well when aired up.

That is probably an O-ring in the RAM actually.
