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

Mar 012007

E-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,446 miles


The truck shuts off. It sometimes is intermittent (runs fine at cruise, but wont idle) or it could be absolute. (truck just up and died! no reason!) there is no timeline, no precursor, no warning. I can drive for 200 miles, then it happens, or 1 to 7 miles. The failure is a stall. Engine light comes on, if a stall comes and doesn't shut down the truck, (usually because the RPM's are being revved up.) and is restarted, the engine light will no longer be on. The engine will restart, or not restart, but eventually it will restart. Then failure again. It started March 1 and continues. All else appears to be functioning fine. I believe it is the camshaft position sensor. I have not yet verified this with a mechanic, but if this is the problem a Ford part will be bought and it will be replaced.
