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.

It happens once a year around the end of the summer this time within 3 months of replacing it its not cheap like 160 to 200 every time I replace it its been every year since I bought the car I'm afraid one time it will catch fire with me and my kids in it.

Expedition EB 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission

Needs to be repaired for second time. My Daughter had the same problem with her 2003 Expedition. Ford should have recalled and repaired as product failure. It is obvious the component that has failed for the third time is flawed

The Axillary Temperature Blend Actuator in my 2004 Ford Exp. has broken down twice since I've owned the truck.First time at 48k miles and the second at 111k miles. This is one annoying vehicle failure because of the "NOISE" that comes after the part breaks down and expense one incurs if you use your dealership for repair. The first time the dealership charged me $280.00 to R&R this component/part. Stupidity on my part. This just happened again a second time last week. I will do the work today and save well over $200 to remove and replace the part (4 screws and one electrical plug)! Why Ford has not recalled their vehicles to fix this issue is beyond me, but I will not buy another Ford until they re-institute their guaranteed Re-manufactured Motor-sport Parts program (RMP). If a part breaks and you buy their replacement they guarantee that part not to fail for as long as you own the vehicle. Good Luck Ford...your gonna need it! Whatever happened to the Quality Goes In Before The Name Goes On? I guess Ford Management doesn't believe in quality anymore and thats a shame! TTFN
