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.

F-350 10-cyl

Upon inspection of this vehicle, our mechanic found the automatic dipstick tube rusted in half on the right side of the engine. At the bracket that bolts to the exhaust manifold. We believe this to be a potential fire /safety hazard if some one was to fill or check the transmission while the engine is hot. We also found the right side shock tower severely degraded because of rust. The top of the tower has large pieces of rust scale on top of the tower that we feel could possibly allow the coil spring pressure to fracture the steel and cause a loss of steering. I have not seen this much corrosion on a truck this new. We have taken pictures and can be E-mailed if needed. This vehicle has been removed from service until it can be repaired. This is a city of allentown, pa fleet vehicle.

Vehicle shakes violently. Only way to get under control is to stop completely. This has happened numerous times. I have read on forums this is a major problem. Ford needs to recognize the problem and issue a recall. This is very dangerous.

I have two 2008 Ford F-350 superduty 4X4 trucks. One truck has 39000 miles and the other 61000 miles. At highway speeds, after hitting uneven road surface or bumps, they begin to shimmy and shake so bad that I have to pull over to get it to quit I have had the trucks in numerous times to fix but the problem always returns. I received notice from Ford that low tire pressure causes this but I maintain correct tire pressure in both of my trucks so I know this is not the problem. I have been researching this online and there is a company called wcmotorsports that claims to know why these trucks are doing this and the solution. Their website is their phone number is (508) 668-8638. They seem very knowledgeable about this issue. The problem is the replacement part to fix this is $825. I feel that this should be a recall issue. After looking online, many people have this problem. I have not modified these trucks in anyway and I feel that it is only a matter of time until this causes a fatality if it hasn't already.
