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.

I have a 2013 6.7 diesel. It goes through the exhaust filter cleaning about every 200 miles. After this process starts the engine runs extremely rough, like it's ready to drop out. There is also a very loud knocking noise and violent shaking while I drive. Yes, it's more than just the typical diesel clatter.

The contact owns a 2013 Ford F-350. While driving at an unknown speed, the check engine warning light illuminated continuously. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the egr cooler and fuel pump assembly needed to be repaired. The vehicle was not repaired. The vehicle was taken to the dealer nine times. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was unknown.

The egt sensor failed, therefore the engine's computer shut down the motor while I was driving 70 mph on the interstate. The shut down starts by no longer allowing acceleration or to remain at a constant speed, but rather forcing the vehicle to slow down and not allowing the driver to keep engine control. I was in a rural stretch of highway and was able to get to the shoulder of the road without too much trouble, however I would be very concerned if this engine shut down happened while driving on a highway with a lot of traffic. I see that ambulance equipped Ford diesel vehicles have been recalled, but not others. If the motor shuts itself down while driving on a busy highway, this is a big safety concern for myself and other employees.
