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.

Hi, the part in the trans. That failed is called the (swag )gear. How I found out. I lost 3rd and reverse coming home from nh. I brought it to a dealership to get it looked at, they said it was running hot and needed replacement, cost to do so was $2600 I new I could get it done cheaper by a trans. Rebuilder so the next day I dropped it off for repair, the bill came to $2250. Much to my surprise the owner and one of his staff said the part that failed was recalled back in Aug. 2000 all vehicles that had this trans. Needed to be replaced before selling the vehicle. I explained this to Ford motor but they said there is no recall on the trans. Parts. I did find some info on that relates more info please call me 508 889 8782 thank you scott
