Default coolant elbows changed...still leaking

ok, so its been a while since i changed the lim gaskets, and the 2 coolant elbows, so far so good. except one of the coolant elbows are still leaking!!!

of the 2 elbows, its the one that connects to the heater inlet and outlet hoses (i guess you could say the back one) should i give it more time to seal up, or do i have to replace the elbow again? if not the complete elbow, what about the o rings? i got the elbows from the dealer along with the lim gaskets (the aluminum ones).

its not a very fast leak, but its still a leak. suggestions?

as far as i know they are in straight. its kinda hard to tell if its crooked. do you have a pic of one straight one and one crooked one?

it doesnt move around at all, so i assume the connection is a tight one. i guess i'll have to pull it off and reinstall it.
