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.

F-250

  • 40,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The contact owns a 2005 Ford F250. The contact stated while driving at speeds of 20 to 65mph the motor would stall causing him to lose all power to the brake and steering. He would coast the vehicle to the side of the road and wait about half hour before it would restart, although there were times that the vehicle would restart immediately. When the failure occurred there were no warning lights illuminating on the dashboard. The dealer was called who stated that the contact purchased the vehicle as is and they would not repair it. The manufacturer was called and they advised him to contact NHTSA to file a complaint. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 40,000.

F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • 51,000 miles
Own a 2005 Ford F250 with a 6.0 diesel engine. The 6.0 diesel has a factory defect with the egr value cooler inside the engine rupturing sending coolant into the engine and thru the exhaust into the atmosphere. This should be a recall due to a factory defect. Ford is repairing this problem if it occurs when the vehicle is still under warranty but allowing the consumer to burden the expense if their warranties have expired. The estimated cost is $2600 to $3300. Ford has redesigned the egr value & cooler to handle the pressure better with thicker walls. The Ford dealership has advised that this is a problem that will happen due to the cooler walls being to thin and rupturing under pressure. The end result is a sudden lost of power with possible steering & brake issues in controlling the vehicle. In our family we have purchased 4 of the F250's. I have pictures of the event as it happens and a copy of the repairs needed to fix this problem. I have spoke with kristin berry with your Agency and receive an E mail of my complaint but I could not make the necessary changes to the form and resent it. The reference # 10305746.
