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 #2

Jun 182015

F-150 STX 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 141,056 miles


Has been happening off and on for a few months now and has now completely stopped working. Last time it stopped I took it in to the dealer and they said they "couldn't reproduce the problem" and had nothing else to say. it worked for a couple months after that then stopped again. It's still under the warranty I got from them yet they won't take a closer look to fix it. It would shutter pretty hard when engaging last week then would just grind and not engage, now it won't do anything.

We replaced the hub & switch for the 4 wheel but still grinding away.

Replaced coil & plug (#7) a few months back, now we are replacing them again ..

Both problems driving me crazy! Does anyone have a solution other then burning the truck .. I just want this to be over with. I am sick of putting $ into this truck!!!!!!!
