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.

2002 Ford F-250 Owner Comments

problem #1

F-250 8-cyl Diesel

  • 160,000 miles


My family is Ford motor dedicated and as we buy new trucks the old ones are passed on to other family members. We purchased three new trucks and having problems with two. They are Ford 2002 F250 Super Duty with the 7.3 L diesel. Both trucks have had there defective injector wire harnesses replaced, shorted out on the interstate causing the engines to shut completely down. No steering, brakes, nothing. I was told by the tech that the wiring is defective and the oil and heat is what was caused the failure, he has seen this repair quit often. The other problem is acceleration to pass or get up to speed quickly going on the interstate or anywhere, when you depress the throttle pedal quickly there is nothing like it just fell on its face. After you take your foot of the pedal and count about 5 seconds and try it again it will work. Big safety issue. I have had 4 close calls and cant afford to repair this truck all the time on V.a. disability. If you know anything please pass it on or back to me. Repairs are very expensive.
