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.

2001 Ford F-350 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 152005

F-350 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 74,125 miles


The clutch pin broke completely off. The clutch pedal went all the way to floor, and the consumer lost control of the vehicle. The consumer talked to Ford and they said that the consumer would have to take it to dealer for repairs. There was no way to move the vehicle except towing it. The consumer had similar problems two other times. The first two times the bushing was over the pin. Whom ever welded the pin, made it hard in the back and as a result it fractured and broke completely off. The pin was welded in crooked when it was manufactured. This is what caused the first two bushings to go. These problems started on August 15, 2005. (11/09/05)
