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.

My 2003 Ford E-350 with the 7.3 L diesel quit, with 74,000 + miles. The cause of the problem was a failed cam shaft synchronizer, Ford replacement part F7tz-12K073-a.

The consumer was driving on the highway preparing to exit when there was a loud "pop" and the engine stalled. The consumer coasted to the side of the road and noticed smoke emitting from under the hood. When the hood was opened, the vehicle exploded and caused 2nd degree burns to the consumer.
