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.

1998 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 072009

Expedition XLT 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 117,500 miles


definite front end or engine vibration increasing as vehicle picks up speed for highway travel... for the last three months I have replaced shocks, replaced two ball joints, purchased new tires and had them balanced, none of the so called pros have a solution for this problem. everyone is just guessing... until this problem arose this vehicle was almost maintenance free for the last six years... any suggestions from anyone that experienced similar problem.

Update from May 13, 2009: found a real mechanic and the solution was the front u-joint.... cost $24.00 part... $70.00 labor .... couldn't of had a better day.... truck is driving like new....
