Yesterday, I was bleeding the brake fluid. I started with the rear, right wheel. the bleed valve screw was tight when I try to loose it, so after I complete the bleed, I tight it - but later I found out the other 3 bleed valve screw are not that tight. How big a chance it is to cause a brake fluid leak by over tighten the bleed valve? (I checked after bleeding and it was not leaking or anything, but I am just worried if the screw might get damaged and gone during hard brake).

Anyone have any experience or insight on this?

TIA.

dont overtighten them, there's no need. They will only break off the next time u try to bleed them costing you more money. Snug them but dont torque on em too hard.

I know I shouldn't after I feel other bleed valve, but since it was tight on the first one, I just over tight it, will it develop a leak? Should I leave it that way until the next change or should I loose it and risk of immediate leak?
