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

F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

2004 Ford F250 Super Duty king ranch. After reflash to repair an idle problem truck developed three very dangerous conditions. 1. cruise stalled - going down hill at approx 55-58 the truck will stall without warning. No power steering or brakes. Reproducable on demand. 2. downshift lockup - truck will lockup rear tires in excess of 30 feet if tow/haul mode is used. On first occasion it almost caused a major accident on highway, came within inches of a head on with a large dump truck while towing a boat. Reproducable on demand. 3. coast stall. Intermittently stalls usually at off ramps after cruise has been released. Extremly dangerous to take offramps in such a large vehilce with no power.
