    Yup, you've got a leak.

    T&T units are not the easiest to rebuild. It's my least favorite job. Don't attempt it without a manual. They've changed so much from yr to yr.

    If you do decide to work on it, do it in a big pan. That way when all those little parts come rolling out, you won't loose any.
