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.

problem #1

Ranger XLT 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 147,000 miles

I had a rebuilt transmission put in and it was fine for about 30,000. But now it only shifts during the summer. Then it gets cold and it wont shift into 3 or overdrive. Sometimes the overdrive lights flashes but not all the time. The overdrive button doesn't work. I let it run for 10 min every morning before i go to work or it wont shift at all I store it in my grage.
