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.

2005 Lincoln Aviator Owner Comments

problem #1

Aviator 8-cyl

  • 60,000 miles


The vehicle began with problems that seemed related to the battery. It jerks when accelerating between 40 and 60 mph. Problem codes keep changing and check engine light remains on. First codes indicated cam/crank shaft, then misfiring, then crankshaft, even after cam and crank shaft sensors were replaced. Jerking continues to worsen. Ford 'claims' the code was not in their system, initially. Problem seems to be causing many things at once to go bad: Battery, compressor, fuel getting to engine, etc. Problems have occurred over several months.
