Default pressure release valve

i recently kegged a beer and after carbing i pulled the pressure release valve and it seemed to be leaking after i released it, the beer was also much foamier than usual, and after the keg was empty but still connected to the gas my tank ran empty in a few days. im hoping i can just replace the valve, any other ideas?

Disassemble and clean first, it could just be a bit of gunk in the valve. Then pressure test again to see if that solves the leak.
