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.

2000 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 172006

(reported on)

Taurus 3.0

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


The engine did not shift properly and I was concerned of damage hapenning to the engine. The problem was diagnosed with the read out, but the sensor for the 2000 was made different for january and june models! I had to buy both because ford was not sure of the one used in my car!

After replacing the car rode fine, replacing was not that bad, as long as the windshield wiper cowling is removed first then the sensor sits on top of the transmission down 2 ft, between the fire wall and the engine. Only one screw is removed to replace the sensor. (but many for the cowling)
