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.

2005 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

Stopped at a traffic light intersection to make a right turn. While I was making the right turn about 5 mph, the 2005 Ford Expedition stalled and all the lights went on. I waited for about 10 seconds to turn on the car. The car started. I stopped 5 minutes later to stop the engine to see if everything was ok. It took two tries to start the engine. I took it to a Ford dealer the next day to get it inspected. They claim it was the "throttle position sensor". I got that replaced for ~$340.

Our 2005 Ford Expedition has shut off without warning twice now. The first time this happened we were driving back from Missouri to Virginia after the holidays in January of this year. We were on the interstate driving about 70 mph when the car just stopped and the check engine light came on. We called Ford and they said to let it sit for 30 minutes and then try to start the car again. We did and it worked. The technician explained that it may have been the cold weather. Just yesterday 12 Sept 2010 my wife was driving home from work when the car shut off on its own again and the check engine light illuminated. She waited a few minutes and the car started again. The cold had nothing to do with it yesterday. Both times we were forced to coast to the side of the road in heavy traffic. Living in the DC area and using interstate 95 on a Sunday afternoon is always a challenge. Having your vehicle just stop running is insane. I am unable to find anything about a recall, but in a search of the web I found numerous owners having a similar issue. What is Ford doing about this?
