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.

I had a fuel injector fail that completely ruined the engine at 71K miles. I had to have it replaced. I was very surprised to see that my problem was exactly like the Ford 2005 customer satisfaction program 07M08 problem. My truck was built in 2005, but titled as a 2006. I have talked and wrote to Ford but they would not help me. I told them I still have the failed injector and they wouldn't even look at it to see if it was one of the defective parts that spurred the 07M08 program. I believe Ford needs to expand the customer satisfaction program 07M08 to include 2006 models. I would love for the NHTSA to pressure Ford to revisit this issue. This was hard for me because I still have the injector that failed. I keep it as a reminder of the $8,000 I had to spend on a new engine. I believe the NHTSA should pressure Ford to admit which injectors were an issue so people like me have leverage to fight giants like Ford that in this case screwed their customer.

Two separate occasions I experienced a fuel injector failure on my '06 F-150 while traveling on I-65 on 10-10-06 and on I-10 on 10-14-06. I was told by a dealer in culman Alabama that I could drive it on to memphis with the engine light on. Upon arrival in memphis dobbs Ford told me there was nothing wrong and I had to take his word. On my trip back to tampa the engine light came on again and I had to towed to american Ford in tallahassee. The replaced #6 fuel injector. Later, while in memphis #5 injector failed and was replaced at landers Ford in collierville. A few days later the engine light came on again and this time it was the catalytic converter, which had to be replaced.
