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.

Cel came on..blew 02 sensor code. Replaced. Few days later cel came back on now with P0171 and P0174 codes. This is a massive know problem from doing an internet search and also searching this site even under other Windstar years. This is a very costly expensive and seems to be quite involved and there needs to be a recall on this.

2002 Ford Windstar. Engine warning light comes on. Test meter shows lean condition in bank 1 & 2. resetting the mil light will work for a few days, then warning light comes on again. Engine runs well, no noticeable problems in driving. This has happened for at least 20,000 miles.
