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.

F-150 EXT CAB 4.6L

We found that many other Ford F150 owners have piston slapping. We were told by Ford it is not a recall because it is not a safety issue. Dealer told us only thing to do is replace the engine - truck has 75,000 fairly easy miles on it. This stinks. Ford engines are not so tough. Will make resale impossible....
