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 #3

Dec 062013


  • Manual transmission
  • 155,353 miles


Feels like my transmission is sticking will not pick up or takes a minute to switch to next level, drives sluggish when it's cold. This very difficult to deal with. I don't know what's going on with my truck, makes a noise when pressing on gas pedal

Expedition 5.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 142,000 miles

My expedition is shuddering so bad it's a pain to drive. I've fixed everything that was on the list of possible causes that the computer printed out at autozone and it's still running like crap. I've read that alot of people have had the same problems with that year and model. Why the hell won't ford man up and recall the damn thing? I'm NEVER buying another ford EVER!!!
