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.

Ambulance on Ford E-450 and F-350 chassis have had major fuel system failures. Both ambulances in the past year have had the lining of the dieself fuel tanks rust off and get pulled into the fuel system. The metal flakes have ruined sending units, fuel pumps, diesel injectors, fuel filters and filter housings. It has caused the ambulances to stall while transporting critically ill patients to the hospital. Ir has also cost close to $9000 to fix both ambulances. The fix was to replace all fuel components from the diesel tank forward to the diesel manifold.
