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.

Rust out of oil pan, 2002 Ford F250 diesel causing major oil leakage onto exhaust. Ford indicated this is a cosmetic problem but issued a service bulletin to dealers. Vehicle has been serviced by dealer since new. Ford indicates there is not a problem as it is cosmetic. It cost over $1400 to fix this cosmetic problem which resulted in totally oil covered exhaust system. Repair was not done by dealer that indicated the problem was a pan gasket. A second opinion showed a large hole in the pan from rusting. Could have been a major fire.

The ignition shut off unexpectedly. The vehicle was towed to a service dealer and they were unable to resolve the problem. There was no code for the check engine at the early stages of the problem. The engine died and the consumer's vehicle drifted into the other lane. The service dealer found that the cam sensor was bad and the exhaust sensor was replaced.
