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 SEL 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles

When driving at highway speeds and going up a incline it seems to kick out of overdrive but instead of being smooth it is a more of a shutter. Any ideas?

Windstar LE

  • Automatic transmission

Two gears went out on our Windstar transmission so I chose to replace the entire transmission with a rebuilt one.

Windstar LX

  • 40,000 miles

Well the mini van starts shaking over 40 MPH and rumbles between 60-80 mph. One guy told me that could be the transmission torque converter, I really don't know about the solution, and I will like to fix as soon is possible!
