VTEC solenoid leak

Okay so beginning of June I was on my way back from Florida when my engine light came on. Waited till I got back home to have it check. Came up as code p2646 which is the vvt oil pressure switch was stuck in the off position. Since then Iíve had 2 and neither have fixed the problem. Went to a pull a parts got a whole new solenoid and now it leaks worse. On the inside there are theee numbers the original had 311 and other had 321. So I donít know what to do next SOMEONE PLEASE HELP !!!!!

I didnít ! When I looked on YouTube it was them only replacing the whole thing. Okay so I know there is a top part and the bottom piece. Should I replace them both? It seems like itís coming from the top because when the motor is running I see the oil.
