FUEL INJECTOR SEAL PROBLEM

First let me confess, I made a mistake. I loosened the fuel injection rail by mistake, and fuel began to spray all over. I immediately tightened it, but I can't get it to seal. Every time I start the car it sprays a lot of gas in just seconds. Seems to be worse on the injector at the 1st cylinder, but might be spraying from others. Help!

You need to check every injectors O-ring/seals-might not be seated

Thanks for the reply. I'll pull the rail tomorrow when I have more light. I'll let you know how it goes. Can the o-rings be reused if they're not cut or do they need to be replaced if the seating of the o-ring is lost?
