I need advice on how to solve a leaky roof problem on an addition. The addition (sunroom) has 2 skylights and right above each skylight, (between skylights and facade) are large plastic roof vents. When it rains hard, water backs up under the plastic and enters the roof. I’d like to know if such a small roof actually needs this much venting and what other solutions are available.

If it were my house, I'd get rid of the vents, patch the sheathing, re-shingle there and call it a day.

I agree with rooferman. That’s a mighty tight spot. And way to much for such a small area. I worry about how close the cap is to the skylight flashing and wonder how many nails from the cap and the course underneath it went into the flashing. The Lo profiles aren’t doing any good would be better off on another section if you weren’t able to install any ridge vent. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Lo pro so close to a window and some windows so close to the hip lol. Hope I helped 🙂
