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.

Excursion 8-cyl Diesel

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

6.0L diesel engines to address reported incidents of engine stalling while driving occurred up to 9 times in one day. On June 25 took vehicle to certified diesel tech, no computer errors. D & S service techs trouble shot for 5 days to no avail. Manufacture has no advice for repair. After 1 week being serviced and over $1,800 of work it stalled again on July 3rd. This is a serious safety concern for myself and my family. Please help in addressing this matter. Thank you.

2005 6.0 diesel Excursion has had many motor issues and lots of parts already replaced by Ford up to this date. Turbo quit working while driving and had to be replaced in may, 2007. In June, 2007, vehicle has more turbo issues and egr cooler assembly is replaced. On July 4th, 2007, vehicle starts stalling while driving down freeway and wiring harness had to be replaced. On July 16th, 2007, (3 days home from shop), stalls again while driving down freeway. Dealership cannot determine problem yet refuses to buy back defective vehicle. It's been over 60 days in shop since bought brand new in 2005. Oasis report is 6 pages long already.
