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 #4

F-150 LX 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,564 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

On my 2002 F-150 4.6 I put in new plugs, wires, O2 sensors, 8 coils, fuel filter, IAC, EGR valve, computer, mass air flow sensor, new air filter, camshaft & crankshaft position sensors, exhaust system, throttle positioning sensor and it runs for 10 minutes and dies, and after an hour or so then it comes alive again and does the same thing. I don't know what to do next. Up until now this had been a great truck. I have babied it and given it regular checks and maintenance. Need help please.

i thought quality used to be job one. now it seems the union job is job one. making a ton of money and spitting out crap. bring the factory to Texas and we'll show you what quality is.

F-150 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,100 miles

Have done regular maintenance to this date. I have changed out the plugs, wires, oil, filters, air intake(expensive!), and have had the injectors cleaned, etc. Don't know what to do next. Had a mechanic hook it up and it through out so many codes, he didn't know where to start!

F-150 XLT 4.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 163,000 miles

I put in new plugs, wires, O2 sensors, coil, fuel filter, 6 fuel injectors, mass air flow sensor, new air filter, crankshaft position sensor, and it just sputters, and dies you can count one one thousand to five one thousand and then it comes alive again ! But it still only goes about 25 miles per hour and shakes and sputters real bad. I don't know what to do next. Up until now this had been a great truck. I have babied it and given it regular checks and maintenance.
