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.

I have the famous oil leak from the head of my 1998 F150- 66,000 mi. I have been quoted around 2000.00 to replace both head gaskets

along with necessary machining etc. Ford has known about this problem for a long time and will not help. This is not my first experience with a serious problem that Ford would not stand behind. I had a 95 Windstar that developed a head problem and the engine went south. Seems this was also a common occurrence, however I was six months past the 7 year limit on warranty. I'm about done with Ford.
