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.

Taurus SES 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,220 miles


i purchased this car used. it was good for 6 months then the problem began. it stops when you're at red lights. will not stay running. chugs when it gets hot on the interstate. it is a real pain. have replaced all oxygen sensors. have replaced throttle body and still the problem is there. tired of spending money replacing parts that don't fix the problem.

Taurus V6 Sho

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles

My car chugs back and forth when I'm stopped at light or whatever and I have to step on the brake and barely push the gas to raise my rpms and it stops. My vacuum pump also looks to be dry rotted if that could be the problem..if so how much is that and how hard is it to do yourself without taking it to a professional.
