On the Jeep Liberty we tow, I had a sensor sort of 'freeze' to the tire valve stem apparently from dissimilar metal corrosion. I forgot exactly the genesis of the problem, but the end result was a Jeep tire stem with galled (unusable) threads. No longer could I easily thread the sensor on and off of the stem. The threads in the Doran sensor were ruined, but the tire valve stem threads would still accept a cap.
I recently talked to the Doran/Pressure Pro people to order new seals for the sensors and told her about the problem. She immediately
said you need to use Teflon tape with aluminum tire valve stems
-- this is the first I have heard of this!
Do you have a Jeep and use screw-on sensors? .... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
John, get a small tube of di-electric grease (Silicon Paste) and put just enough to coat the threads on your valve stems, and you will not have that problem again.
You can get it at any auto parts supply or online:
