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.

problem #3

Jan 212004

F-350 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The contact stated when pressing the gas pedal the vehicle hesitated. The vehicle has been to the dealer five times. The dealer replaced the exhaust sensor, the turbo, and reprogrammed the computer three times. The replacement of these parts had not corrected the problem. It recurred intermittently. At times, it seemed as if the engine was not receiving a fuel supply. Indicator lights did not illuminate on the dashboard.
