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

May 042005

(reported on)


  • 88,000 miles


6.0 powerstroke diesel /truck has been in shop 7 times in last 4 months. a total of 23 days not counting the inconvience of being without a truck. i am self employed as a truckdriver. i depend on this truck. ford would not loan me a truck because of the miles that i drive per week. i have talked to several people about this problem who also have a truck with the same engine. i think ford needs to do a recall on this. truck has had both heads replaced, inter cooler, 6 injectors plus 2 of the injectors replaced have had to be replaced again 3 months later. this engine should last a least 300,000 miles. i had a 1996 with a 7.3 powerstroke engine that had 380,000 with out any engine problems. but ford had a better idea and came out with a 6.0 that is not as good as the 7.3 in dependability.
