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.

problem #1

Nov 022007

E-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65 miles
Vehicle lost power 3 different times, once on interstate, twice in highway traffic, and in one case the engine died. Turns out cause was failure of tank lining clogging up the fuel system. Each of the 3 times I replace fuel filters before finally cleaning out the tank and determining actual problem. Ford knows there is a problem with the tank lining, as shown on Ford technical service bulletins 19728, but has done and will do nothing about the problem except tell me to replace my tank at almost $600 + labor.
