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

Oct 102007

(reported on)

Explorer Limited 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 121,000 miles

My ford explorer lost all forward drive. i changed the transmission fluid and the filter and had forward drive for about five minutes. Now when i put it in drive it is like the clutch is slipping but it is an automatic. the best way to describe it is like a person driving a manual transission that has never done it before with a very high rev of the motor and slowly begin to creep along. once i get moving i cant get above 3000 rpm's or i lose pull again. what could be wrong here it is a pain to deal with this and try to get back and forth to college. any advice would help thanks.
