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.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford Excursion. The contact stated that while driving 15 mph, the vehicle failed to accelerate while the check engine warning light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for a diagnosis where it was advised that the injector pressure system needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 95,000.

problem #1

Jul 202009

Excursion 8-cyl Diesel

  • 83,800 miles
We have had numerous incidents with our Excursion dating back to one week after we purchased it used from a local Ford dealership in July 2009 until now - Sept. 2012. We began experiencing acceleration issues after the first week. We returned the vehicle to the dealership for a diagnostic evaluation. They replaced the ipr and fuel pump. This seemed to fix the problem until January 2011. In January 2011, the accelerator began failing again. It would just stop working. The car would crank initially and then fail to recrank if turned off within a short amount of time (I.e. driving to the store). We were told that we needed a new fuel sensor. That didn't fix the problem. We then had the catalytic converter replaced. That didn't fix it. Yesterday, while driving in afternoon traffic with my children, everything once again shut off. I barely managed to make it to the side of the road. I can not even count the number of times in the past 3 years that I have pulled out into an intersection only to have my accelerator not work. It has progressively gotten more extreme. Today I found out about recall that took place for the same model/year, but according to the Ford people, my vehicle didn't qualify.
