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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles


Transmission pressure control failure. Automatic transmission has difficulty switching from 2nd gear to 3rd gear and this causes the motor to accelerate to high RPM in the process. A large jolt can be felt when this occurs as well. Troubleshooting code P0745 is present.
