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.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford F-350. While driving approximately 50 mph, the contact drove over an uneven road surface and the front end of the vehicle began to shake vigorously. The vehicle would also shake abnormally when decelerating. The contact stated that in addition, the check engine warning light was illuminated, the vehicle would erratically shift, and the fuel tank was delaminating. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostics but the technicians were unable to determine the cause of the shaking. The technicians were able to determine that the transmission shift sensor and the fuel tank would have to be replaced. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the transmission was rebuilt. And the transmission shift sensor was replaced. The fuel tank was not replaced. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000.

Truck runs rough, check engine light come on, fuel sensor error. There seems to be quite a few similar complaints. Dealers stated fuel tanks are corroding. Why has there not been a recall? this is a manufacturing problem. Ford should deal with it or made to.

F-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • 66,000 miles
My Ford F350 turbo diesel truck would not go faster than approx. 25 mph, could not get any power. Came to a stop light and it died and would not restart. Had it towed to the nearest Ford dealer thinking it would be covered by the warranty. They have changed the fuel injector control module-no fix, the fuel pump and filters and found foreign substance/corrosion, pulled the fuel tank and found the source of the corrosion, delaminating fuel tank. The repairs are up to $2500, the fuel tank still to cost $1300 to replace the part but still have labor involved. Also the fuel injectors, 5 of the 8 are exhibiting no power and various other fuel filters that they named off will also need to be changed. That will cost another several thousand. I have contacted Ford manufacturer, customer assistance and they state they will not pay or assist me in the cost even though we are only 6 weeks out of warranty. The truck is like new, only 66K miles. This is unbelievable. I've never experience such a traumatic costly problem in an automobile with only 66K miles. I still have the truck at the dealer and can't afford to pay the cost.

My truck starting losing power little by little over a short period of time. The check engine light came on & I took it to the Ford dealership.they advised me that the egr system was failing & the cost is $2500. They also told me that Ford knew about the problem & should have recalled this I can't drive my truck without worrying about engine failure (until it's fixed)..interstate travel is just about non=existent for now..I will not let my wife drive it anymore for now...this truck only has 75,000 miles on it & for now is not safe to drive anywhere but short distances...

Gas pours out of the filler neck after every fill up. I do not click extra to "top it off" and still gas pours out of the neck when I remove the pump from the filler neck.
