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.

Our family was riding in our 2001 Ford E-350 Super Duty 15-passenger van powered by Ford 5.4L V8 255 hp on I-80 eastbound near milesburg, pa this past Saturday afternoon (July 7,2007) and one of the spark plugs blew out of the cylinder head. I am awaiting repairs even now. I have noticed our government's reluctance to issue a recall on what appears to be a recurring problem for '97-04 Ford engines with the aluminum heads. The repairs are very expensive! please help! thanks, david lipsy
