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

  • 10,000 miles
The vehicle will spew white smoke and lose engine power when under acceleration after extended periods of driving time at highway speeds on rainy or humid days. I have had this problem since it was new, vehicle currently has 120,000 miles on it. I have had this vehicle in to several different Ford dealers in several different states, but they all tell me there is nothing wrong with the truck.
