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.

Ford diesel engine began to sputter/miss/backfire/etc-later shown to have 'blown-up'... basis of problem appears to be in the 'crank-area' of the engine. Has to be replaced @ 116,000 miles with a $20,000 pricetag. (note: Any diesel should be good for 250,000--300,000 miles). We are 2nd owner(1st owner was a Ford dealer) buying on 5/31/12 47,276 miles on speedo.

Came up to stoplight, applied brake, engine would not slow down. Put truck in park, engine continued at 4krpm. Pressed accelerator and engine returned to normal. 4th time this happened since I bought vehicle new. Ford dealer says code doesn't show up and can't do anything. I have driven 75,000 miles and this is third Ford van and never had problem like this before.
