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.

In Feb 05 took car to shop to report that it revs up at times, when foot not on gas peddle.they said they replaced clutch solenoid. It seemed to stop, but took it back in may and was told it did not show any codes when they hooked it to computer and to make sure my foot was not touching gas peddle when I was stopping. The Explorer continues to have this problem of reving up when my foot is not on the gas peddle. I feel I can't take it to the dealership where I got it. As they ack like I am stupid and don't know what I am speaking of. I am scared every time I drive it.
