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.

F-550 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,000 miles


- the contact owns a 2004 Ford F550. The contact stated that approximately 1 year the vehicle had an electrical short., took the vehicle to be repaired and that very same day had problems with the transmission slipping. The contact stated that approximately one year later in January 2007 the transmission would not engage, and one could drive down the road and the transmission would just stop working. The truck was currently in the repair shop, and it has taken Ford over a week to diagnose the problem. The current diagnosis showed that all 4 solenoids in the transmission needed to be replaced. The contact stated that the transmission needs to be totally replaced. The contact stated that neither speed nor the weather were factors. The dealer stated performed the recall pertaining to fuel injector control module wiring and charged air cooler duct.
