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.

I own Explorer 4,0 1996 driven only 130 000 kms. I had car in service and had afterwards some running problems in engine, sent it back and received comment "your engine has problem in 2nd cylinder".

They proposal was to open whole engine - no idea what it could be and costs as big question mark.
