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!

Do you
have the same problem?

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?
