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.

1999 Ford F-250 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 202011

F-250 XL 7.3L V8

  • Manual transmission
  • 130,000 miles


We have replaced the egr twice in this truck and both times it was at our expense, not only that but we have had to replace it twice in our other '05 the second time at our expense. The truck and engine are good other than this stupid egr bs and not only is it an expensive repair it also decreases the fuel economy. Ford really screwed up when they took the 7.3L diesel engine off the market because our truck with 250,000 miles is still going strong while our newer trucks keep breaking down. It is getting old. And another thing my husband works out of his truck, so when it breaks down he don't make any money so pile that on top of the already ridiculous repair cost and it really costs us because this repair takes at minimum 2 days sometimes a week depending on when the dealership gets to it.
