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.

Had issue of overheating on hot days when running the AC. No problem found by Ford Dealer. Now I have a Hesitation during light acceleration, almost a bucking or bumping. Had a Compression check run on engine, found out that each cylinder was supposed to be between 160 to 170 psi. Cylinders 1 & 2 are 170. Cylinders 3 & 4 are 70 & 90 psi respectively. I was asked by tech if there had been an issue with overheating.
