Hi
Is the valve leaking even with the cap tighten on? Or only without the cap? On mine one valve leaks without the cap pretty much, but with the cap on no leak. If the cap is leaking guess a new O ring gasket would sort that one. If it's leaking significantly without the cap on, then maybe this would help:
