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 #2

Oct 192004

F-250 4WD

  • 4,445 miles


Vehicle suddenly stalled upon pulling up to an intersection. Vehicle was then towed to a dealership for inspection, and dealership indicated that fuel injection clip broke and fell apart, and the high pressure oil side was leaking. The broken clip was replaced. A service person test drove the vehicle and it stalled again. Consumer traded the vehicle in because the dealership was unable to correct the problem.

problem #1

Mar 232004

F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,800 miles
The consumer owned a new 2004 Ford, F250 with a 6.0 liter diesel engine. On March 7, 2004 while driving at 65 mph and without any warning, the vehicle lost pressure. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the service technician determined that one of the fuel injectors malfunctioned. Two days later while driving on the highway another fuel injector failed, which caused water to leak onto one of the pistons, therefore the engine was burning water. The dealer indicated that they were aware of the problem.
