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.

The engine quite several times, the last time the vehicle was totally dead and wouldn't restart. Also, the emergency flashers were inoperative.

Ford E-450 box truck with 6.0 diesel has 40K miles on it. It has been in the shop 4 times already. It required all new fuel injectors, a new clutch fan, egr valve, new radiator, brakes including rotors, and ball joints. All except the brakes & ball joints were covered under warranty, but it is down one week out of every month for repairs. The 6.0L diesel should be considered under the lemon laws.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford E450. During rainy weather conditions, the engine will not turn on. The engine also stalls if it begins to rain while driving and will not restart. The speed was not a factor. Each time the failure occurred, the vehicle was towed to the Ford dealer and after a few days they were able to restart the engine. The mechanics have not been able to diagnose the failure. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 9,000 and the current mileage was 15,333.
