I filled my 1st tank (68ci 4500psi) today and when I went to fill the next one it started leaking out of the vent hole (yes the valve is screwed all the way out) and it wont even start to fill another one. I didn't find any other leaks excpt the vent hole. Any ideas would be helpful, it surely can't need to be rebuilt already can it?

No it doesnt need a rebuild. The ball bearing that seals against the oring probably has a particle caught in it. Remove the vent rod with the knob on it and poke in there with a paper clip while there is air pressure and try and blow it clean.
