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.

Engine logo light came on; then red sign came on " stop safely now". I pulled to the shoulder and the engine stopped. I waited 30 minutes or so and the engine started again. I drove starting and stopping to a Ford dealer in clarion, pa. Slept in the truck all night and the next morning [xxx] ran the computer and his conclusion was the number 8 cylinder injector was bad and that causes the heat sensors to malfunction. He didn't have the part but suggested running it until it cuts out, let it cool then run it again. Well after about 70 miles it stopped for good. I then called up montross Ford, and they had the injector so I bought it thinking next I'll find the mechanic, on a Saturday afternoon I was wrong. Next I looked up recalls and I found a recall for faulty heat sensors, that recall was for the same time period as my truck was made. I am now sitting on the side of rt. 76 with no where to go pulling a 4 car trailer, customers upset and my last hope is Ford Motor Co.
