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 XLT 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,500 miles


while still under warranty I was told that the engine was"cooking antifreeze" when I asked what needed to be done they flushed the system and changed the radiator cap.after the warranty expired the truck started with the white smoke thing.I was told that it needed a new egr cooler and screen to the oil cooler resevoir.the repair was 15 hours and $1900.00.when I showed papers that the problem started before the warranty was up and should not be charged they told me that the cooling system was up to the owner to maintain.I wonder if the 15 hours of labor was the reason it was not fixed while it was still under warranty.
