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.

The consumer stated that 2004 Ford F250 intermittently on the road. This has happened about 20 times. The dealer fixed the truck and when the consumer picked up vehicle it still stalled. The truck was put on a diagnostic machine once and the truck pulled up 9 codes. The parts replaced were the valve and modulator, egr valve and gasket, reprogrammed automatic transmission control module ( PCM), and road tested. The vehicle then surged on the road test. The dealer found that egr valve was stuck, and it was replaced. The dealer felt that it may be the wiring harness.
