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 8-cyl Diesel

I was driving on a two lane blacktop road at 35 mph, when the vehicle unexpectly died losing all power, including steering and brakes. This occurred after I had just exited a U.S. highway where the speed limit was 65 mph. Due to the fact that I am a former police defensive driving instructor I was able to steer the vehicle to a side street. I bought this vehicle to tow a 14,000 lb. Fifth wheel trailer and I am glad it was not attached.. it turned out that the problem was the stc fitting. Ford told me that this part has a common failure problem and it has been replaced with the revised stc fitting. My concerm is that failure of this part with an inexperienced driver on an interstate could be fatal. The stc fitting is apparently attached to the high pressure oil pump, and when it fails you lose all power and the vehicle will not restart.

F-250 8-cyl

The contact owns a 2006 Ford F-250. While driving 65 mph, the vehicle shook violently and felt as if it would flip over. It took a while for the contact to regain control of the vehicle. The dealer test drove the vehicle, but was unable to duplicate the failure. A report was filed with the manufacturer and they stated that the dealer would call the contact within four days. The failure mileage was 25,000 and current mileage was 30,000. Updated 12/30/08 the horn would randomly blow on its own. Updated 01/05/09.
