have you oiled your gun? put like 6-7 drops in your ASA, then attach your tank and dry fire till no more oil comes out, this will lube your CVX valve and hopefully stop your leak withought further problem

To eliminate the leaking sound, you need to cock your marker 1st before screwing in the tank into the asa.

^not really. a little may get in your rear bolt by blowback, but not every where else needed. make sure you take off your barrel and dry fire a lot after oiling your ASA too.

This is probably you're problem.  If it's uncocked, your rear bolt may be putting enough pressure on your valve to open it up slightly... it will go away when you shoot - exactly what you're describing.

Make sure you dry fire about 20 times after you put 15 drops of oil in the ASA, but this does not do a good job of oiling the gun.  It's better than nothing, and is great for oiling the valve--but not for much more than that.

Cock your gun before you screw your tank in, that
should do it.

Yeah, cock the gun first. Also, make sure you use a full tank, a low tank will do that also. It wont reset it.
