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 #3

Sep 012009

F-150 XLT V8 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


A very capable garage replaced the original heater core and radiator and they replaced number 2 failure at no cost to me.The 3rd heater core is leaking so badly that the truck is not drivable.The garage mentioned above has shown me the blackened area where the electrolisis is coming from the inside of the heater core thru to the outside and making the holes which causes a leak or in thes case -a gush.They have tried using grounding straps on the cores- to no avail.
