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 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • 66,817 miles


My 2005 Ford F-250 6.0L diesel lost acceleration onto a highway. It stalled and started billowing white smoke from the exhaust. After a few moments it slowly accelerated, but nearly caused an accident as cars ran up onto us. The engine was missing and we made it to an intersection to pull off of highway. We stopped and restarted the engine and it started running normally. However, it happened again once we were on the road. We made it to the dealership where they diagnosed the problem as a failed "ficm fuel injector control module." This has been reported to them multiple times, but a recall has not been issued for this model. I did find reference to a recall (Ford recall no. 05S34) of the exact nature on a different year model. I called Ford and they would not reimburse the cost of the part and labor of $1100.
