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.

On 4th blend door actuator. door remains "maybe stuck" and small plastic gear in actuator strips out (failure). Last three "master mechanics" said the actuator failed.... disagree. Something "ahead" of the actuator tells the blend door to move (and the actuator responds accordingly). There is NO sticking of the door as it moves freely (was told be the last three mechanics..). So, perhaps whatever device is intermittently doing out that drives the settings.... so it's upstream. Replacing actuators is not the fix.... I am seeking advice on what to do next. Perhaps the temperature remote control module? This is the digital control system (Taurus SEL). Help?
