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 #1

Dec 192005

F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,800 miles


The contact stated the power steering pulley fell off the engine while driving. This caused the contact to lose control of the vehicle and resulted in loss of power steering and brakes. Upon inspection, the pulley appeared to be glued on instead of bolted. The contact believed there was a defect in the way the pulley was attached to the shaft. There were no problem with the steering prior to this incident. He reported the incident to the manufacturer. Updated 01/11/06.
