I say cap it temporarily then test drains upstairs. If they run slowly, that might be the culprit ... and you DO need a vent. If you cannot re-route it easily, then the only option I can suggest might be an air admittance valve. (see pic and link)

The difficulty is I believe AAVs need to be mounted vertically, not upside down. They certainly cannot be mounted on an angle. The manufacturer can explain this ...
