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.

I have a 2001 Ford mustang V6 convertible. Ford has a defect on their dpfe sensor for their emission egr flow. This is a big problem in Ford mustangs. Every person I know who owns a 99-01 has had to change their dpfe sensor, spending their own money for Ford's defective product. Even the local rock river Ford dealership parts dept. Told me that Ford has a big defect on this, and they should have recalled the problem. Ford has a faulty dpfe sensor on their mustangs. I guess I'll have to pay my hard earned money to temporarily fix their problem, by buying a new dpfe sensor. I think Ford should give me a new sensor, it was their defective product. Check under any of the 99-01 V6 mustang forums sites, and see how many people have the service engine soon light, for "insufficient egr flow". caused by their faulty product. I also have a problem with my throttle sticking. Under hard acceleration, when I take my foot off the gas, the car will continue to keep going faster. The gas peddle sticks. I have almost got into a few accidents due to this.
