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.

E-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission

The contact owns a 2004 Ford E 350 a conversion van which will not start. The van has a power stroke diesel engine. The van was towed twelve or more times to multiple dealerships to locate the problem. The contact stated that no dealer could figure out what the problem was. A diagnostics test was performed on the vehicle about fifteen times. The contact has talked to Ford numerous times. He invested $96,000 in the vehicle and would like to be able to drive it. This I happened at all times of the day. The contact was living out of the vehicle and was having thousands of dollars in towing expenses. Also, there were rental car and medical expenses as a result of the failure.
