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

Windstar LX 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 180,000 miles

We have changed everything on the motor but when its sitting and idling it runs fine but when you put in gear and drive it within 10min it starts sputtering and cutting out then finally shuts down. I have spent $2000 even been to ford dealer who said was valve spring and it still did it after their repair. the repair supervisor said well its ok to drive like that! Does anyone have any ideas? changed ERG, AirFlow,Cpak, plugs wires, cadiconverts, computer. They even said the exhaust flow hoses where plugged and ford dealer wanted $700 to clean them out, took to a guy said he did it but still doing same thing!
