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.

Our vehicle has been to three different Ford dealers for the same repair. The vehicle develops a miss. It will show up while driving at about any speed under very light acceleration. The only thing consistent that was said by all the dealers is that many 6.0L engines had the same problem, that Ford was developing a repair plan, that the engine was sooting up a sensor, and that they didn't know how to stop the problem. They said they could keep replacing the same sensor that would temporarily resolve and clear codes, problem would likely return.
