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.

2001 Ford Expedition fuel system indicator problem. With vehicle tank capacity at 1/4 full and when parked on an incline (engine down) vehicle has repetitive ignition problems due to insufficient fuel pick up. Service technicians from Ford dealership indicate they are aware of such, but can only recommend "always keeping tank at >1/2 full and they will not/can not repair deficiency". this practice isn't always practical. Further research from your website indicates this is a wide spread problem according to NHTSA item #10010731. Isn't this enough for a recall campaign?
