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.

I love my Lincoln but I want to trash it when it won't start and I need to go to the doctor or store. This started out small but has escalated to where I can hardly get it to crank. Haven't had funds to get this fixed but have been told the flashing security light signify it won't start. In the a.m. or throughout the day we can raise the hood to find the engine is completely damp. We feel the moisture is the problem, so can we spay it with some form of Silicon to prevent the dampness? This matter turns me off the Lincoln, which is a beauty.
