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.

Shudder in drivetrain at slow/idle speed. Ford dealer replaced drive shaft, and transfer case - did not fix problem. Still do not have any answers or fixes.

problem #1

F-150 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles
Vibration in drivetrain at highway speed (between 65 -75 mph). Only happens when truck is under power. As soon as you remove your foot from the pedal, the vibration goes away. Drive shaft was replaced over 6 months ago, but that did not fix the issue.
