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 #2

E-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Ford econoline E350. While driving 60 mph, the vehicle shut off completely and lost power steering ability. The Ford dealer and manufacturer offered no assistance. The vehicle was towed and it was discovered that the interior of the fuel tank had delaminated and caused the engine to lose power. The dealer would not repair the vehicle under the three year, 36,000 mile warranty or under a recall. The contact was not informed if his vehicle was included in any recalls. The failure and current mileages were 35,000.

E-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
2005 Ford E-350 ambulance had a total engine failure while driving to a 911 call. The Ford dealership service center diagnosed an oil pump failure as the cause and replaced it under warranty. This is compliant #5 of 6. all of the 2005 Ford ambulances we purchased have suffered total engine failures from either the oil pumps or the wiring harness systems. In addition 3 of 6 have needed new ac systems as well. Ford is unwilling to replace these parts on the other units until they fail. They are placing numerous lives in extreme jeopardy and refuse to admit there are major problems with the 6.0 L diesel engine in the 2005 series ambulance chassis.
