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. Notes: The Freestar was introduced in 2004, but it was essentially just a rebranded Windstar. While there was a redesign of the interior and exterior, the Freestar still inherited some of the design flaws of its predecessor.

2004 Ford Freestar Owner Comments

problem #1

May 142012

Freestar Limited 4.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,700 miles


Van leaking oil from a part that was to house an oil cooler assembly. Don't have the towing pacakge or the oil cooler assembly but the part that supports the assembly was leaking. Waterpump and timing cover had to be removed to get to part. Dealer broke crank shaft and tube and had to replace. Oil continued to leak. Had to take van back three times. Oil leak supposedly fixed but now I get check engine light p1336 relating to camshaft error and computer needs to relearn. Gas mileage is terrible.
