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.

2002 Lincoln LS Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 042007

LS 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2 miles


2002 Ls overheated. Dealership replaced thermostat for $130. Drove the car less than a mile from the dealership and it overheated again. Took it back to Ford and they now said the hydraulic cooling fan (hcf) is bad. They said it tested good when replacing thermostat. How can the hcf just go bad" the car still overheats even with the new fan. The new fan with labor will cost me $1000. Plus the engine still overheats. Why did they not see this when they did the diagnostics testing? my Ls is still overheating and $1130 spent and they don't know what to do. Why"
