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.

1999 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 112007

(reported on)

Windstar LX 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,000 miles


Was driving about nine miles when the temperature gauge suddenly went to HOT. Pulled over, tried to get a tow but could not as it was a busy holiday weekend. "Bunny hopped" home--drove about 3 miles after engine cooled down, temp went up, shut engine off and wait another 45 minutes for it to cool down. Very hot day, no other way to get home. Made it in one piece but had to pay for tow to repair shot.

Found not only cracked water pump but also fluids leaking all over. Absolutely no prior warnings that anything was wrong with vehicle.
