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.

pcm module get wet from leak in windshield car won't run

thank goodness I found this problem fix on google. THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM! it causes your car not to run and has cost lots of people a ton of money!! FORD knows about this and has never recalled it! The cowling has a piece of foam that didn't seat right and water leaks right down onto the PCM module! it gets corroded and wet and causes all kinds of problems with the car!
