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.

2004 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 062012

Excursion 8-cyl Diesel

  • 74,000 miles


The hose from the turbo to the intake cooler will blow off and cause pressure loss. When towing a trailer on a hill the engine turbo system will produce high pressure and will blow the hose connecting the turbo to the intake cooler. The vehicle ends up without power, making the situation extremely dangerous to riders and other vehicles due to the radical deceleration, from 65mph to about 15mph while trying to pull to the side. The problem is a common issue to Ford owners with diesel engines 2004 and 2005, maybe others. Internet searched "Ford turbo hose blow off".
