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 #1

(reported on)

Thunderbird LX 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

Shutters at speeds from 40-70. I've done some research on this and found out that ford got a bad batch of transmissions from like 94-95 model years and and the transmissions are notorious for shuttering. The fix from what i found out was to have the transmission and torque converter flushed and replaced with mercon transmission fluid.
