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 E-350 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 182005

E-350 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles


I was driving my van when a very loud explosion occured. Pull over to side of road and shut off van. Exited van and smelled a strong gasoline odor. Open hood and found a spark plug & coil laying on top of engine! the spark plug just exploded out. This van was taken to dealer and the "heavy" tech said that this has happen before, because of lack of threads on engine head four to be exact. Ford recomends that the plug be change at 100,000 miles. This E350 van has 77,000 miles on it with the original plugs still in it. Ford has no current recall on this problem.
