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.

Went to start my car yesterday and it exploded with a large puff of black smoke! Seems that the the my spark plug exploded out of the engine. The head in the motor is aluminum and the threads are bad. I checked on Google and of course Ford motors are very popular for this this problem! BEWARE of FORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will NEVER buy FORD again!
