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.

My car has 29,500 miles on it. I bought it used about 3 weeks ago. Following symptoms: 1 - car stumbles/hesitates/loses power at around 2-3K RPM...regardless of speed...but stumbling/hesitation is best felt on the freeway. 2 - car has had some type of recall work and dpfe sensor replaced at: 17500 miles. Not sure if fuel pump recall has been performed...Ford dealers have been very reluctant to tell me without making me spend $150+ on a stupid diagnosis...that's called good business. 3 - dpfe sensor replaced prior to me picking up the car at: 28440 miles. 4 - 1000 miles later...I have the stumbling. 5 - things I've done to the car: A - replaced air filter B - replaced fuel filter C - replaced PCV valve D - replaced plugs (using Bosch platinum 2) so far I've done all changes myself because no Ford dealership seems to care to offer advice or a helping hand. The consequences are that I've almost been hit from the rear due to stumbling/hesitation.
