Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 102011

Crown Victoria P71 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,742 miles


Whenever I attempt to put fuel in the car, it blows out of the fuel filler opening. It doesn't matter if the car is almost empty or almost full, it shuts down the automatic cutoff of the nozzle every 2 or 3 gallons or .3 gallons. Unless I can actually hear the fuel starting to come up the neck, it blows gasoline out of the filler pipe before shutting off automatically. Sometimes it will do it even when I stop it manually. Usually when I finish refueling, there is a puddle of gasoline behind the rear driver side on the ground and down the side of the car.

It is hard to tell when the tank is full when the nozzle clicks off every .5 gallons or so. Then, it is easily overfilled.

It is a dangerous situation.
