Injector leaking and puffing air

Hello to all and help on all the postings for things like changing glow plugs. 6 is a beeech but with the posts I got it done.

Anyway, while under the hood with the big foam bit removed, I noticed what appeared to be diesel around # 2 injector. Looked but couldnt see anything wrong but decided to leave the foam bit off for now. This morning I could hear a Pfft Pfft sound from under the hood. Closer inspection it was coming from the injector and I could feel air with my hand. No oil / diesel coming out but based on the dirt it has at some point.

I tried tightening the injector but no difference. Any thoughts?
