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.

2001 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 232012

Excursion 10-cyl

  • 107,000 miles


The approximate date above is the first time my Excursion blew out a spark plug while on a family trip in pa. Since then, it has blown 2 more in separate instances, the most recent being on the highway this past Sunday. The first incident I was towing and putting more strain on the engine, but the 2nd and 3rd incidents no towing was involved. I have read about and several mechanics have also told me the Ford Triton engines are known for this problem. It seems Ford should do the right thing and fix the problem.
