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 #3

May 222003

Expedition 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles


While stopping we would hear a thud sound coming from the transmission as well as it would surge. Then it lost the ability to disengage from 4th gear. Took it to the dealership and they had it for a week. Got it back, and on the way home the problems started again and the error code started again. Took it back for another round of repairs. So far this has cost Ford $2,300 and counting.

Sometimes when starting, vehicle will lung foward as if it was in gear. It may only move and inch or so but it feels as if you are starting a car in gear.
