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.

2007 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 272010

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

  • 45,000 miles


The 5.4L engine has a tapping noise coming from the top half of the motor on the passenger side. It occurs when the engine is idling at a stand still. It happens randomly. Have been speaking with Ford warranty and dealers trying to get fixed and because it is intermittent they do not want to work on. We have taken to 2 dealers a total of 3 times and spoken with Ford warranty and they refuse to pay to have the motor opened up and looked at.
