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 #2

Taurus ES 3.0L V6 Not Ohvc

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124,000 miles


2000 Ford Taurus v6 3.0 not dohv. Started having engine knock when cold and under load, appeared to improve when warms up. Changed plugs, wires and tried higher octane but with no improvement. Online posts say maybe a bearing or anti knock sensor. Not sure if this engine has such a sensor. Really puzzling cause other than this the car runs fine. I am concerned if left will cause problems that I can't afford to fix. Please help.
