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.

problem #1

(reported on)

Windstar LX

  • 38,000 miles

The first problem I had was a check engine light and car was missing with a P0174 lean code. I changed plugs and wires and it went away. Then two weeks later I got a P0306. I checked it out and the #6 injector was not working. I used a noid light to check the wires to the injector and it showed good. Instantly it ran great. For about 3 minutes. Then was missing again. This time it showed a P0302. I shut the car off and went inside to cool down. I came out 15 minutes later and the car ran great. Now 2 weeks later I have the engine light on again and a P0306 again. I changed the fuel filter,plugs,wires,checked the coil,pcm connector,and all other connections and have not fixed the problem yet. I diagnosed like the book says and the way a ford tech. said to and still have problem. I'm ready to set it on fire and collect the insurance.(not really)But I'd like to. Can anybody help?I only have 38000 miles on it and I'm just out of warranty. I can't trust our ford people here in the valley. Also,checked the EGR ports and they are clean.
