Problem: Valve guide (star) is bent.
Solution: Replace the valve guide.

Possible Cause: O-rings on valve are bad.
Solution: This is the most time consuming problem a gun can incur, and is usually the last thing you’ll try to fix a leak. You have to disassemble the entire marker, even taking off the grip assembly to gain access to the gold screw which holds the valve in place. After taking all of the rear components and front components out, use a long straight object, such as a straight shot squeegee, to push the valve out. The valve does have a front and a back so notice how it comes out. The large opening with the surface that doesn't protrude out as much is the front or faces out like the barrel. The small opening that protrudes out more is the rear. Replace the O-rings, reassemble the marker and see if the leak is gone.

If even this doesn't fix your leak, there may be an imperfection on the valve where the cup seal comes in contact with, the large opening. Take the valve and rub it in a figure 8 on an emery cloth that is sitting on glass and this will help to smooth out any imperfections on the face of the valve.
