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 E350 at 39,000 miles one spark plug blew.. out of head. Ford dealership said they would only replace the entire head at a cost over $5,000 dollars. Had repaired with helcoil at local repair shop. Again at 79,000 miles two spark plugs blew out of head. Not yet repaired.

E-350 8-cyl

  • 91,000 miles
Ford E-350 with 5.4 Triton V-8 in HVAC service truck. Blew spark plug out of # 7 cylinder @ 92,000 miles on 5/15/06. Lost day of work to make repairs on truck, repair parts $130 on 6/22/06 blew spark plug out of #2 cylinder. Put truck down for 2 days while repairs were made. I had all plugs removed 4 of the remaining including #2 were bad. That's 5 of 8 that the threads were compromised. All of these were factory installed original plugs. I had the repair shop install repair sleeves in all the plug holes. The terrible part of all of this is that I may have been lucky. I didn't have to remove the heads, if the head is damaged beyond repair the only recourse is to replace it, not usually a real major job. But thanks to Ford engineers the only way to replace the heads is to remove the complete cab. In a pickup it's tough in a van who are they kidding.
