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-350 7.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,679 miles


i can't believe no one knows what the remedy is for this problem. seems to me there should be a recall on this problem as well considering the shift control module has a recall on it. this might be a problem coming from it as well.. i think ford needs to take a better look at this situation and take care of this asap....I'm not the only one with this issue and once again(duh) no one knows whats going on with this problem..

The shift light flashs for about a week, then it goes off and its like nothing has ever went wrong. It only goes off for about two days then it happens again. The transmission is the fifth one in the truck and was replaced 13,000 miles ago. What the hell is wrong with my truck
