Metal Roof Flashing Leak


I recently had to install a new chimney & flashing due to ice and snow damage that tore off my old one.

Now that I have the new cathedral support, chimney & flashing installed I have developed a small drip down the inside of the cathedral support. After many attempts to reseal the flashing to the metal roof, I still have a drip on the inside.

I tested the roof with a hose around the flashing, and worked my way up to the peak but of course, no leakage inside. I have also sealed each screw with silicone? Anyone have any suggestions or a product I can put on the metal roof to stop this? The roof did not leak last year with the old chimney.

Are you talking about a cricket? Pictures would help, along with some indication of where the leak is.
