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.

2003 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

Crown Victoria LX 4.6L Sohc

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,901 miles


2003 Ford Crown Victoria LX. I was driving home yesterday and when traffic slowed down my temperature gauge shot up like a hot tamale. I was able to get off just in time before my coolant ruptured out of my reservoir that simulated a Chernobyl like melt down.

Luckily my car decided to blow up coolant right next to an Auto Zone and I decided to get a minor diagnosis on it. Instantly the employee told me that the fan control module failed or the fan itself failed. I let the car cool down, dumped some peak 50/50 green coolant, and drove home with the heater blasting so I wouldn't overheat. At home I tested with a multimeter and there is power going to the fan from the car.

Will update further into this problem as it is quite common on these Crown Victoria's.
