When you took it apart did you notice any worn or cut orings? second when reassembling did you lubricate the orings with a light grease? The puff of air might indicate the firing valve in the cap is sticking or possibly you pinched an oring upon reassembly (I have done it also) I would take it apart like before paying close attention to the condition of all the rubber parts. It would probably be to your benefit to purchase an oring kit and just completely redo the insides. They are not that expensive and then you know everything is fine. Also look at cylinder to ensure it is not cracked or out of round and condition of bumper and driver seal in the bottom of tool. Good luck

Air tends to leak near trigger of my senco sls15 1/4" crown stapler . how can i stop it?

You have worn or broken o-rings/seals inside the gun. You need a Senco repair kit YK0393. Senco doesn't make them any more but there are still a few to be found on the internet. If you can't find one, go to the Senco webpage, find the parts breakdown for your gun and order all of the o-rings, seals and gaskets and rebuild your gun.

Sns45xp senco dosent shoot anl leak air for the cap

You have worn or broken o-rings in your upper firing and trigger system. You need a Senco repair kit #YK0230 to fix your problem. Fairly easy to do, replace one o-ring at a time to make sure you get them back in place properly and use the grease in the kit liberally. Since you'll have it apart I also recommend you get Senco repair kit #YK0231 which is the lower seals and piston stop. If the upper rings are going bad the lower rings won't be far behind.

Do i need to buy piston driver assembly or can i by just the driver blade

These new Senco FinishPro tools are chinese made and unlike the old US made tools, you need to buy what's termed a 'piston driver unit'. It should be fairly cheap though, compared to old Senco parts.

I have a senco stapleer (sns45xp). I put in a rebuild kit. Now the piston won't retract.

If a piston won'tretract it's usually because of one of the o-rings around the cylinder. Take the gun apart and make sure all of the o-rings on the cylinder didn't get damaged while putting it back together and that they are well coated with gun assembly grease so they slip into place without getting damaged or pushed out of place. Pay particular attention to the o-ring covering the small holes around the center of the cylinder.
