Tire Valve Stem Troubles

Has anyone had troubles with the valve stems on your Dually? I have a 2017 F350 that I had the stems replaced several times. Mostly the outer rear tires and now the last one was a front stem. This is the forth valve stem in a year. All were replaced under warranty. Is it the stems or wheel design?

I would say they have a bad batch of stems at the shop you are using. Are they steel core stems? Are you doing some crazy mud bogging?

Is that an official Ford TSB?

Ford is installing OEM stems. I was told that the design allows for dirt to get under the seal and then eventually it leaks. I have had a Dually since 01 and this is a first for me. The only difference is now I live near the beach. Not sure that is doing it though.

Angry Leaking valve stems

This has been an ongoing issue with late model dually SD trucks. It is caused by galvanic corrosion between the nickel plated stems and aluminum wheels. There’s a SSM 47326 about using a rubber valve stem that is compatible with TPMS. This has been discussed on Ford Truck Enthusiasts forum at length.

Not sure where you got the "compatibility" idea. The message is only a parts message indicating that a service kit is available that does not include the TPMS sensors which are not only separate and removable from the valve stems but expensive and do not require replacing to resolve leaking valve stem concerns. In typical Ford fashion the message conveniently leaved out the part number which would be a time saver for technicians like myself. Here...

Some 2017-2018 F-Super Duty vehicles equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) may exhibit a leak at the tire valve stem. When making repairs to the tire valve stem, there is a service kit available that does not include the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sensor. When replacing the tire valve stem follow the procedure in Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 204-04A. For claiming, use causal part 1700 and applicable labor operations in Section 01 of the service labor time standards (SLTS) manual.

What I meant is that the existing TPMS can be attached the the replacement rubber valve stem. The replacement valve stem # is F2GZ 1700 C. This issue has been discussed at length on the Ford Truck Enthusiasts forum under thread Rucurring Valve Stem Leaks. The number is in #210 in this thread

I've had 3 replaced on mine. No doubt a defect of some kind.
