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.

Windstar SE 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission

Simple part in dash controlling air flow failed. Part costs less than 50.00 and can be repaired with three orings. Labor to remove dash and other associated work brings cost above $300. A little more quality in this part would save hundreds and cost nearly nothing to manufacturer.
