Some stations work and some don't.

I have a rainbird system, during the past winter the line going into the vacuum valve frozen causing some water to get to the lines just below the solenoid. I replaced everything that needed to be replaced, and when I went to turn it on, the first station worked great and then the others did not, very low pressure and water was coming out of the solenoid conections. I replaced to solenoids that the guys suggested to do, and after everything was done, all the stations were trying to come on. I can't seem to find any other leaks. I am in need of some serious help. :(

Skip the controller and try to open zone valves manually. You may have other freeze damage to deal with.
