slam valve slow leak

Hey guys didnt see any leak guides on the slam valve. My problem im facing is a super quiet slow leak coming from the solenoid area. All the orings are new, The slam valve is screwed all the way in. I dont know if the bolt should be screwed all the way in or flush with the body, any help would be appreciated.

Solenoid area usually means the little o-ring between the LPR and the manifold; nothing to do with the bolt.

i had an instance where 1 grain of sand got between the manifold and the body which prevented the orings from sealing off. took me hours to figure out, so don't forget to clean out the bottom of the manifold and the mating side of the body too

Awesome will check it out, does the manifold require lube?

The o-rings should have a very light lube coating, that's all.
