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.

Ranger XLT 4.0L V6

This truck is going in for repairs Tuesday March 2009. I am broke need the truck and thought I was doing our country some good by buying U.S. Next truck TOYOTA! I know the idle sensor was bad when I bought it used. But it would not show up on their computer so they would not cover it. The truck would not start so I found out by a ford guy tap it and that fixes it. So I carry a small hammer with me and that is sometimes how I get it to either idle right or start. The sensor only acts up once in a blue moon.
