SO today I decided what the heck to play it sae let me rebuild the whole valve block, so everything went find and I put the valve block back into the car started her up and nothing happeded I then sprayed some soapy water on and it appears that the compressor is running fine but a lot of air is going straight out the exhasut on the block but when I remove the line that goes to the tank there is pressure and air in the tank,when I was putting the new o-rings in I was using vaseline and put some on the no return valves as well as the diaphram could this have an effect on the air pouring out the exhaust?

I'll let somebody who knows more about the valve block answer that but what I do know is Vaseline on rubber O'rings is not a good idea.

Any petroleum based product on rubber will make it harden and crack. AKA. KY jelly instead of Vaseline - lets not go there?

Pulled the vlock out and cleaned all the vaseline off the o-rings everything is 100% now no leaks and the car doesnt lower after a couple hours should do the compressor some good as well.

if you can replace brakes, you can do a valve block. I've had complete novices report success with their blocks.
