A quick fix is to screw in a blank cap.

Sounds like the one way (check valve) has either gone bad or has some trash around it keeping it open.

Agreed. One that's that new likely just has some manufacturing debris caught in it keeping it from closing. Easy DIY job if you're into it, and not hard to find a replacement if required. Otherwise just put a plug in as suggested earlier.
