Well...hard to believe but STILL leaking.

So after 5 years of NO ISSUES, two separate issues at the same time. As soon as I fixed the original defect, meaning no glue AND there was a CAP on the line...so no venting.

Fixed it...see pic. Actually fix was easy, hard part was climbing with all tools across the attic.

Next day HUGE RAINS...HUGE LEAK still...

So now I have to go up on the roof or hire someone and fix the BOOT issue as well.

One word of caution, if you push the pipe up to glue it make sure that the boot stays in the upward cone position and does not pull down with the pipe or you will end up with a leak there also.

I checked that and the boot was still in the right position...
Hard to believe I had two problems at once after years of no problem.

Guess when it rains it pours...no pun intended.

Yup sometimes Life happens.
But the second issue may have been caused by repairing the first, as you moved the pipe around to reglue it you disturbed the boot and it is now leaking.
Not a hard fix, just have to be careful when breaking the shingle loose, and make sure you cement them back down.
As a temporary fix, you can just slide a new boot over pipe to cover the old boot until it can be properly installed, just to keep water form getting in.
