    Sounds like you have a leak....

    in the seal between the - and + chambers. This is not that uncommon. The seals need to be or should be replaced on a fairly regular basis, about every 2 years or so. The shock isn't screwed, just in need of a rebuild/service. The best way to check is to empty the - chamber, then fill the + chamber. Then check the - chamber. If there is pressure in the - chamber after filling the +, then you have a leak between the two chambers and the seals need to be replaced.

    My SID recently started leaking from the - chamber. I'm looking into a rebuild kit but I'm going to try a warranty first.
