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

  • 67,294 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Ford E-350 diesel. While driving approximately 35 mph and exiting the highway, the vehicle stalled without warning. The contact was able to maneuver the vehicle as it coasted off the ramp and onto a second highway where the vehicle was maneuvered to the shoulder. The contact was able to restart the vehicle yet it continued to stall repeatedly. The vehicle was towed to a local mechanic where the contact was advised that the injection pump and injection control sensor was defective and would need to be replaced. In addition, the mechanic advised that the high pressure oil pump was damaged and the housing which would also need replacing. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was contacted and advised that the vehicle was not included in any recalls. The failure mileage was 67,294 and the current mileage was 67,310.

2005 Ford E-350 ambulance had a total engine failure while driving. The Ford dealership service center diagnosed an oil pump failure as the cause and replaced it under warranty. This vehicle also suffered a total ac system failure that was replaced under warranty. This is compliant #6 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.
