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.

Explorer XLT 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 190,000 miles

My transmission in my 95 Explorer must have a mind of it's own. A few months ago, it started slipping, so I changed the filter and fluid, did fine for 2 or 3 weeks, and now its slipping again. It was just randomly at first, now sometimes when I take off from a standstill it shifts out of first, then act like it goes directly into neutral, and then jerks really hard. And when it's not doing that, every time I go the transmission shifts from first to second, it's shifts very hard. Hopefully it'll keep working, just no more long trips; don't wanna end up broke down hours and hours from home. Lol. Any advice or previous experience on this kind of issue would be great
