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.

2005 Ford F150 5.4L engine twice the fail safe came on while my wife driving and the engine shut down. Once in October,2009( on the interstate, speed 65) and 11/19/09. This could have resulted in a serious accident she was able to get off the road. After a couple of minutes, engine started ok. With no check engine on Ford dealer replaced throttle body and motor; reprogrammed PCM at a cost of $510.
