Make sure there is no water in the pipe near where you are using solder. Use flux as mentioned above. If its clean, and you are using the correct flux and solder it should work. Make sure you don't move the joint while you are applying solder, and no

You won't be able to sweat the joint if the valve is leaking. You only have to rough up the copper, and apply flux to prep it. Heat the copper fitting for a minute or more on the bottom or side . Remove the torch, and Touch the solder on the top of y

Some things to try All fittings must be polished as bright as a new copper penny. Nothing else will work. Use temperature indicating solder flux. The color change will tell you when to apply the solder. Home cheepo and Lowes sell this. Remember

clean the pipe and fitting with a green scrubby; use flux, heat the fitting and the pipe (focus on the heavier piece) feed the solder into the joint from the side opposite your flame - it should melt and wick into the joint. oh, make sure water

That's been in the back of my mind for GDI engines - low NOACK, less VII, less SAP, more pure base fluids ... It just appears hard to tackle the problem with TTDG alone ...
