is it the instant that you introduce air, or just when you increase pressure past a certain point?

At any rate, the FIRST ting you should do is replace your orings, then try again.

Yeah, I would say so. I've had plenty of friends have the issue with a PMR8. I never bothered to work on them though so I would ask Trbo, he knows just about everything.
