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.

F-250

  • 62,200 miles
While driving down the highway at 70 mph, my 2005 Ford F-250 diesel truck engine suddenly died. I had to wrestle with the truck to get it stopped and pulled over to the side of the road. I had no steering when the truck engine stalled suddenly and had trouble getting it stopped. I was towed home as the truck would not restart. We then towed it to the dealership for repairs on July 26th, and it has been there until today, Saturday, August 7th, 2010. The dealership replaced the high pressure oil pump at over $1200. Even though the truck had 62,000 miles, it had just gone over 5 years old. We were told this is a big problem with Ford diesels and the Ford engineers are telling consumers that they aren't changing the oil enough. I consistently changed the oil in that truck every 5000 miles with delo 400 as I was told to do. There needs to be an investigation of Ford high pressure pumps and the amount of money consumers are having to pay for repairs because of this defective part. I asked to have the high pressure pump that was removed from my truck, and I was told that he had to send it back to Ford because it had a very expensive core. I'm sure they did not want me to have the evidence.

Lost of power, then crank but not start then start a dealer after being towed to them, excessive smoking to blame on erg valve and cooler, and turbo air charger leak. Required replacement of erg valve and cooler, and replacement of air turbo charger (covered by extended warranty purchase).

F-250 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • 16,000 miles
My 2005 Ford F-250 superduty 6.0L diesel, first incident was may of 2007, at 16,000 miles my turbo charger went bad when I was trailering my horses in Vermont, forced to stop at unknown dealership who "cleaned" something so I would make it back to my home. Again on the drive home I lost the turbo. It had to be replaced at the dealership, columbia Ford, ct the next day. I was told I had to drive my truck hard and everyday in order to prevent the problem from occurring again. In March 2010 brought my truck to monaco Ford, the motor had to be removed due to "all of the gaskets and seals in the motor leaking, as well as the turbo charger being bad again. This occurred at 24,500 miles. The side walls of my tires are peeling, the running board on the drivers side is falling off, and the body side molding is coming off and now at 26,000 miles the air position selector for the climate control system is not working. If I put it in a position for venting or for front and floor I just blows through the defrost vents. Obviously the warranty has passed with the exception of the motor and I have 26,500 miles on this truck.

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.
