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.

IT SOUNDS LIKE ITS BOUT TO BLAST OFF...NEVER HAD A CAR IDLE THIS HIGH AND ROUGH. THIS HAS BEEN THE ABSOLUTE WORST CAR I'VE EVER OWNED. FORD NEEDS TO TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY FOR PUTTING OUT AN ENGINE DESIGN THAT IS CLEARLY FLAWED.

I had taken my car to a dealer in san bernadino ca. and was told nothing was wrong but was charged 90.00 to have then scope the car. i drove it thru Christmas like that and the problem really got bad. i took the car to another dealer in Moreno valley ca. today and was told throttle valve was going out and then they told me the cost!!!!! this car hac drined me $$$$$$ wise for the 7 years i have had it! ford needs to recall these cars altogether or give us back some of outr money for the time and trouble it has taken to fix them!!!

i just brought my car in may/2006. i was coming home from work one day and when i went to put my car in park the engine idled so high i thought my car was going to blow-up. i had the mechanic look at the problem and discovered it was the idle control valve. i bought the part and everything was ok. 1 month after that my car started to misfire in the cylinders i changed the spark plugs and wires still the same thing. can some one tell me whats wrong with my FUCKUS!!!!!!!!!. ?
