Why does my valve leak continually?

If your valve is leaking out the injection port, vent line(s), or the stator ring and stator interface, most likely the rotor seal has been scratched. When replacing the rotor seal, I always check the stator face assembly to make sure that it is not damaged. Any chip or crack on the ceramic stator face will damage a new rotor seal in just one turn. If the pressure setting of the valve has been exceeded, this can cause the valve to leak as well.
