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 #7

While driving at 35mph or less the driver side front hub assembly may emit an intermitent grinding noise as if the hub is trying to lock into four wheel drive. Grinding noise stops when vehicle is slowed to 15mph or less. Sometimes full stop is needed to cease grinding noise. When noise stop a jerk can be felt as if the hub locks back into its place. Took vehicle to Ford dealership and they recommended bringing vehicle in when grinding noise was present. That is not possible because the noise will stop when I slow down. Dealership could not recommend any way to diagnose it without paying to have it inspected. Problem has not been diagnosed and manufacturer has not been notified. Vehicle was bought 3 years ago at 43K miles and has approx. 80K current miles. Noise is intermittent with occaisional long periods between occurences. Can happen within 5 miles of driving or after 500 miles of driving.

Shifter won't come out of parking. I have researched and many people have reported the same issue with Ford F150. Service manager said shifter sensor was not working.

The failures stem from bad oil flow to the top end of the engine due to a flaw in design. Specifically my camshaft, cam phaser, timing components and lifters rollers have failed. The problem first showed up at 42256 miles and has since resurfaced twice even after expensive repairs. The worrisome part is that the web is filled with thousands upon thousands of similar complaints about this engine which is also in Expedition and crown victorias and probably other Ford vehicles.

Blowout of tire with 20,000 miles on vehicle and tire. Started researching why a perfectly good tire would blow out and found an ongoing investigation concerning faulty valve stems. I had all my valve stems checked when getting the new tire installed and found a faulty valve stem on another tire. I spoke with 3 different people at Ford who all said they were unaware of any faulty valve stems. I had to purchase a new tire and valve stems to correct the problem.
