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.

problem #1

E-150 V8 Triton

  • Automatic transmission
  • 180,000 miles

This is a VERY well maintained vehicle. Oil changed every 3,000 miles and lots of parent active maintenance. Blew out the number 7 spark plug threads and all. Also destroyed the coil pack. Dealer fix only in this area. Dealer Fournier 2 other " loose" spark plugs. Had all plugs replaced, helicoil for the damaged cylinder and two additional coil packs.

Then I find out Ford's 5 Triton engines are infamous for this. Why?
