Debris in valve core? Bent core? Randomly Begins leaking after airing up or jarred

Hey guys weird thing i've been experiencing with my front tires valve stem/core.

I first noticed it when i went to check tire pressure on the tire, after airing it up, the tire sounded like it was leaking, so i checked the rubber and found no punctures then slid my hand over the valve, its hissing air slowly out of the stem/core, then i nudged it again with the reverse side of the tire pressure gauge and it luckily stopped.

I think there is either debris in the core, or the core is bent/broken causing the air to escape and the valve stem to otherwise malfunction and be unreliable.

Have any of you experienced this before and do you know if this is in fact sounding like debris in the core, and can be fixed with a new core and a simple core remover or should i go to get a whole new stem or somesuch otherwise?

Im kinda confused as to why its doing this, i've never had one do this before, cager or motorcycle otherwise.

Get a little valve core tool and snug it down, if it still leaks, put in a new core.

It's a wear item. Just replace the core. Cheap fix.

I could be anything from a little moisture not allowing it to seat to debris to corrosion.
Try replacing the core. Swing by and I'll give you a couple.
