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.

The wires in the coil pack become extremely loose over time and can easily become loose or brittle and break. If the wires are loose the car will run lean and surging may occur while cruising. Coil pack should be replaced. Ford made a recall part, it costs about 40 bucks.
