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

Expedition 8-cyl

On the 2002 Ford Expedition I have found that there is a problem with the pick up in the gas tank if the vehicle it is mounted in the center of the tank and if the vehicle is below or at a 1/4 of a tank and parked on a grade at all the fuel will not pick up and run out of fuel causing the vehicle to stall this very dangerous especially if you work down town and park on a grade then you have 2 choices coast to a level area with no brakes or call for help. Luckily my wife's Expedition has only done it here at the house where she parks on a hill but most of the time I try to keep it above a 1/2 of a tank to combat the problem. I would very much appreciate it if you would check into this problem and let me know what happens.
