    Sounds like something in the solenoid or solenoid chamber isn't seating properly.

    PGA's are pretty finicky, I've had problems with them that couldn't be solved. They're very sensitive to flow control and need pressure to close properly.

    Spend a few extra bucks and replace it with a PEB, you'll be happier.

    I stripped it ones, all inside look ok . I heard some buzzing noise from the solenoid and after slight tap, it stopped ,so I decided to buy new solenoid.
