Re: Replace TP valve or water heater?

@ 18 years old, your tank is living on borrowed time. Most tanks need replacing by that amount of time -- unless they are stainless steel.

The T&P valve may have shut itself because of sludge being pumped up from the bottom of the tank rather than the valve working correctly.
