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.

Heat stopped working.....hearing a clicking sound......had the very same problem happen on our 2000 Ford Windstar! Never had that one fixed....not a big deal now that the weather is getting nice but will need to have fixed once it gets cold again! Any idea how much this would cost to fix?

Where is the heater core located on a 2001 Ford Windstar?The a/c is ok,

vehicle operating temp is ok, the problem is no heat. When the

cold / hot slide control is moved you can sometimes hear a

banging sound, but still get no heat. What is the problem ? Can the

heat be made to " turn" on and stay on? I Really just want to know where is the heater blower switch located on the car.? Thanks.

Its Really Annoying because the passenger seat and the driver are cold during the ride but the backseats the heat blows.
