Leaking Vented Loop

I have a vented loop on the hose from the head to the holding tank that squirts not so nice fluid out when the head is flushed.
The vented loop is a Marelon that appears to have a replaceable vent cap.

Has anyone else had the same experience where the vented loop leaks?
Is this a common failure? It sure is a messy failure......The vented loop is about 3 years old.
Is it worth trying to replace the cap on the vented loop or should I movce away from the Marelon parts?

Any advice would be much appreciated.
