Default Still having trouble with my brakes??

I have bled the system several times and the pedal still slowly drops and I found today that the left front bleeder is leaking so slightly. Only when the pedal is depressed and not around the threads, it's actually coming out of the center hole. I have this as tight as possible any more I feel like it will snap off. So what gives? Is it something in the caliper?? I did have a speedbleeder in there but it was leaking around the threads. Maybe I'll re-install that and put some teflon tape around the threads.......

Sounds like you need a bleeder.
