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 #2

Mar 042014

Windstar LE 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles


Instrument gauges appeared possessed -acting like windshield wipers on a high setting. A slap on the top of the dashboard sometimes corrected problem temporary. Dealership would replace it for $500 I replaced the instrument cluster with a used one ( $75.00). Cleared the problem for about a year then the problem came back.. not sure but it must be a computer issue???????

problem #1

Windstar V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 171,501 miles

The only thing I can say is I don't know why one day alll of my gauge's starting with my RPM gauge went "Kokomo LOCA". They straitened back up for a week or 2 but my RPM gauge had gotten stuck down in my transition gage spot didn't do anything to damage it I could still move all the gears. But when it finally desided to pop back up it broke the tip of the RPM gage off it started to go "4loco" again than it fell back down in the transition gear spot nothing's effecting my transition #Ijustwannatysonmyvan I love her but but she's acting like a jip right now
