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.

E-350 8-cyl

1998 Ford E350 van 5.4L V8 blew a spark plug when starting engine. Spark plugs was changed by Ford dealer at 90,000 miles plug blew with 122,000 miles. Ford dealer removed head, installed spark plug insert and charged me $1700. I believe spark plugs should never blow out of cylinder head when installed by a Ford trained mechanic. The spark plug Ford uses has only 6 threads on it. That is not enough threads for a aluminum head. This is a engine design error.ts
