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.

FUEL GAUGE STOP WORKING SHOWING LOW FUEL. FIXED 3 TIME BY DEALER AND THE LAST TIME THEY SAID IT WOULD DO IT AGAIN AND IT WOULD COST AROUND 1800.00 DOLLARS, 600.00 FOR HARNESS AND 10 HOURS FOR REPAIR. SEND ALL INFO TO FORD HQ AND NEVER GOT A REPLY.

Explorer Sport Trac V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

About a month ago I filled the tank with gas and realized after driving about 25 miles that my gage was STILL on empty. This problem has been recurring frequently and is following on the heels of a 'computer adjustment' from the dealer that was required after the use of ethanol. I'm being told that there is no way to isolate the problem other than to remove the gas tank and replace the sensor (which someone else told me means to replace the whole fuel pump assembly. I find is hard to believe that with today's technology there is no way to isolate the problem and that to replace a simple sensor you have to replace a $200 part AND remove the gas tank.
