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

Jan 142011

Windstar LX Wagon

  • Automatic transmission
  • 135,000 miles

When I first start my Windstar it just runs like it is not firing on all cylinders or not getting enough gas. It is like it is hiccuping. Once I get it in gear and moving it will stop. Doesn't do it all the time. My mechanic was supposed to have fixed this by changing the EGR valve and doing a tune up with new plugs and wires. Now I have no idea why it is still doing this. Only does it after starting the engine and not every time. I am really frustrated because the car I love now seems to be falling apart and I don't have funds for expensive repairs or to buy another vehicle!
