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 light in the consumer's 2002 Ford Escape illuminated. The error code read P0401. Ford released at least four technical service bulletins covering this issue. The main problem was with the egr/dpfe pressure sensor. After the replacement part was installed, the vehicle ran fine.
