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 #1

F-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • 73,251 miles
Engine began bucking, sudden power loss and power steering and power brake loss. Mechanic conclusion was that the lining of the fuel tank had dislodged and caused the engine to foul, causing a sudden power loss. Dealer said they had never heard of the problem but we later learned they were very familiar with it, had done dozens of repairs (replacement of tank with poly tank) and that a "secret" repair bulletin had been issued ty Ford to all dealers. This issue is now the subject of a class action lawsuit in New Jersey. Google "Ford fuel tank lining" for more info on the suit, but by not issuing a recall this issue is a potential safety concern. Had we been in heavier traffic and unable to get the vehicle to the side of the road there may have been a serious accident.
