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

Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission

Fuel pump failed two months after warranty. Had car towed home then towed again to repair shop, (not to dealership )as they shafted me about an alignment previously. I will be buried in one of my reliable VW Transporters. 69 & 71 Westy.

Update from Oct 24, 2011: New Problems : running lean on both right & left bank/ Changed MAF & 2 Oxegen sensers Front.still a problem. Running lean. When I replaced the thermostat I found a Rotten Vacuum ELBOW hidden by the upper radiator hose, After replacing the 5/8 ID vac hose Everything is perfect. Erased check eng light. check all your vacuum lines before you spend big bucks like me . Yes I live in the dumbest city in US FRESNO
