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.

2000 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 012012

Taurus 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 93,206 miles


I have owned my car for nearly 5 years now. It runs like a charm, and I get great mileage (28mpg around town 35-38 on the highway). In Ocotber of 2012 I started having a problem fueling the car. It would start filling and within a few seconds the pump would shut off, I would wiggle the nozel around and pull the lever again and it would start up again. This would go on for about five minuetes until it finally filled the tank. I took it to our local garage ( a family run operation that I have been going to for the past 25years and always got great service on my vehicles , and still do)He tried everything from the filter, to the fill pipe, to a new gas tank. He even contacted Ford with this continuing problem. They made some suggestions in regards to removing the tank, then the fuel pump and replacing the filter inside to the pump (nearly a $300.00 bill). This worked for about two or three fill ups and then it started again. The next step was replace the fill pipe and tank which lasted about 5 or 6 fill ups and then it was back to cutting in and out on the fill up. My mechanic can not supply any further assistance even with calling Ford.

Do you have any suggestions ??????

It is not affecting the operarion of the vehicle, it starts everytime even when it was -30'F or 30'F above, runs great and rides well. Besides this "Pain in the Ass" situation I have not had a major repair on it, just normal maintenance.
