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.

Continue to receive sudden engine surges and stalls at low speeds and now the "wrench" engine warning light comes on before the vehicle stalls.

problem #1

Explorer 8-cyl

This issue is one where a dangerous situation occurs without warning and has not been repeatable on demand. Normally, this occurs on flat, dry, paved road at speed of under 30mph. The "traction control" light on the dash comes on, the brakes begin to hammer, making the pedal unresponsive, and the steering becomes very hard to move, pulling the vehicle to the right. After the vehicle comes to a stop (of almost to a stop)... pressing and holding the "traction control" light/button resolves the problem, at least until the next occurrence, which could be days, weeks or months later. Visits to various Ford Motor Company dealerships have resulted in "nothing found" -- they always say that the problem didn't happen while they had the car and that no codes were found in any of the car's systems. As of today, the car is at joe myers Ford, houston, tx where this same scenario has played out.
