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.

While driving a powerstroke diesel Ford truck, the "cam position sensor" can fail without warning. This shuts the engine off and your power brakes and steering. Very hard to control. The Ford dealers don't always diagnose like in my case I left the dealership and it shut off in traffic. I paid $800 for a repair I didn't need. I have been researching this since March and have discovered that this is the most common part failure on the 7.3 Ford powerstroke diesel engine. The same basic design is used from 1994 to 2003.
