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.

problem #1

Jun 092014

Expedition XLT 4.6L V8 Triton 24 valve

  • Automatic transmission
  • 224,000 miles

Well, to begin with the Triton 3v motor is the worst ever and have a lot of problems. First it was VCT solenoid, then cam position sensors, then wheel bearings on three wheels. On June 9-2014, while driving about 40 miles per hour, the truck started to shake and made a loud noise like if it was a heavy duty truck.The check engine light and battery and check gauge light all came on. Once I pulled over then put my scanner on and got random miss fire codes and a huge loss of power.

I managed to make it closer to home while being very scared of being hit. About thirty minutes later, after making a light, the steering got hard and the car cuts off on the side of the road. Thank god I was not killed and after walking about six miles I got it towed later that day. My next move is to change the throttle body and that it does solve my problem.
