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.

2000 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 032008

Windstar SE 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 109,000 miles


The day we bought this car (used) we noticed a small leak. So, we popped the hood and see the problem almost immediately. (It wasn't doing this earlier that day.) Water is spraying out. At first glance, we think it was the water pump (it was dark...) We park the car until the next day when my husband has a chance to look at it. It was the coolant bypass tube. One of the welds was leaking. It was a fairly cheap part. Just a pain in the ass trying to find the time to fix it. (if we had the money to go to a shop, we wouldn't have bought a Ford in the first place)
