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.

Can not get truck inspected because of this code. P1537. Code means Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open. Have nothing but problems with this truck. This is an 02' Ranger. Parts Replaced: New engine, 2 clutches, radiator, intake, starter and now this. Keep in mind all repairs have been done by the local ford dealership where i bought the truck. Have something fixed and 2 weeks later something else goes wrong. Sounds strange to me...... Sent a complaint letter to ford but they said "They stand by the work of the dealership and employees of ford do not tamper with repairs." yea right. Can anyone help with this code??? P1537 PLease dont make me go back to the dealership.. I wish someone would just steal the truck from my driveway.
