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.

1996 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 012009

F-150 Larait 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 209,000 miles


I bought a 1996 Ford F-150 knowing the transmission was rebuilt. I had the coolant tank flushed and radiator winterized by a pro. I replaced to air filter and an oxygen sensor. He told me to replace the starter and the flex plate, so I did. This fixed the starting problem, but left me with a check engine light. I don't know how many more sensors I need to inspect, but if you do please respond. Or if you have any other solutions to my problem feel free to tell me what I might need to look for to fix the truck. Thank you.
