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.

problem #2

F-150 Lariat 5.4L

Now it's beginning to seem a little ridiculous! The truck is doing the very same thing that it did a couple of months ago and the first time was a year ago. Only this time I couldn't get up past 35 mph and it ran really rough. The feeling makes you feel like the truck is going to shutter apart at any moment. I am getting really sick of having to replace coil packs. That and now every time I drive the truck I run the risk of being stranded somewhere. That's not cool, considering we are out in the middle of fricking nowhere! Mechanic said he thinks it is another coil pack but I have not been able to get my truck to him as of yet.

Just about one year later we were making that 1 hour trip again and the truck started running really rough and had very little power. I had to floor it just to get up a slight incline and coming down the hill the "Service Engine Soon" light started flashing and the truck started running worse, so I called my mechanic and he replaced the number 2 coil pack.
