Exclamation 98C Leaks Air

Alright, I have got a tourney this weekend and when I took out my gun to make sure it was working I found out that it is leaking air. I have replaced the front bolt o-ring and shot some oil through the gun but to no avail. It is leaking air out of the barrel and from the bottom where the air line is. I havent had time to tighten the gas line but I wouldnt think it would be that because there wouldnt be air coming out of the barrel. The only thing I can think of is that there may be something wrong with the valve. I will be gone all day but hopefully I will maybe be able to work on it tonight. If anybody has any suggestions or ideas that might help it would be greatly appreciated.

Has to be the valve. Nothing else would make air leak down the barrel. Might just need some new seals in it. And have you put some oil in the asa recently?

Yes, I oiled pretty much everything before I tested it and found out that it was leaking. I will probably try and call Tippmann on Monday to get a replacement valve. I just hope I get it by the tourney on Sat and that it was the valve that was leaking.
