What kind of gun? Do you have any aftermarket parts? What does your gauge (if you have one) read? We need to know a little more information before we can help you, although I imagine you have a bad seal in the valve. An inspection and either a new oring or a little lube ought to do it, but I'm not the greatest experts on leaks in this forum so somebody else can probably help you with more precision.

Wow, you've got good connections

Are you comfortable removing the valve? It can get pretty dicey if you don't know what your doing.

That rarely indicates a bad noid. Where exactly is it leaking from? You can put a tiny bit of soapy water on suspect areas to see where it bubbles, and there's your leak (just don't let water get into the solenoid). My first guess is that its leaking from the manifold. Squeeze the ram and solenoid together, does the leak go away? If so, your mounting screws have come loose (normal), and you should use some blue loctite or teflon tape on them to prevent them from vibrating out in the future (be careful, don't let either of these get into the noid or ram).

Your LPR might be too high and it is venting in order to avoid damaging the solenoid. Turn the lpr to flush and start from there (over a chrony, simlutaneosuly decreasing the HPR to stay in the right velocity range).

EDIT: Also make sure its not just leaking from the barb where the hose is, but that should be obvious.

he just said its highly unlikely, somehow i doubt you know the in's and outs of your gun, or chances are your problem would be fixed...exit just gave you some good information. now use it.
