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.

2002 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #1

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles

I own a 2002 Ford F-150 supercrew 4X4 pickup with 5.4L V8 gas engine and aod automatic transmission. At 48,500 miles on the vehicle the od on/off switch would not stay engaged and was flashing intermittently I took the truck to a local transmission shop who showed me metal shavings in the transmission pan and was told the torque converter must be replaced and the transmission must be rebuilt. I agreed to the work because I need a dependable vehicle. I have never abused the truck in any way and do not haul any type of trailers with the vehicle.
