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.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac - 4X2 manual 18 Oct 2002 - vehicle stopped shifting into gear clutch fluid reservoir empty - dealer replaced clutch master cylinder assembly. 02 Nov 2002 -vehicle stopped shifting into gear clutch fluid reservoir empty - dealer replaced clutch slave cylinder assembly 11 Jun 2003-vehicle stopped shifting into gear clutch fluid reservoir empty - dealer replaced clutch master cylinder assembly I believe it also occurred in 2004 but no record of work performed. 26 Dec 2005-vehicle stopped shifting into gear clutch fluid reservoir empty - dealer replaced clutch master & slave cylinder assembly 29 Dec 2005 - vehicle stopped shifting into gear rework from last repair - air in clutch fluid line. Although no accident occurred, the failures present a very dangerous situation, particularly when trying to accelerate; merging into traffic, entering interstate, etc Ford is aware of this dangerous situation and has not addressed it adequately. There are currently four technical service bulletins (tsbs) issued by Ford related to this complaint.
