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.

  • 80,000 miles


2005 Ford F-150 5.4L Triton had 2 blown spark plugs. First one happened at 80,000 miles, second at 130,000. The first time it destroyed the exhaust manifold and cost $3000 to repair. The second time this happened it blew the left side exhaust and the coil pack. This cost about $1500 to repair.

Coil on plug keeps miss firing. They were changed twice. Ford wants to do a valve job to fix the problem. The truck has only 57000 miles on it.
