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.

LS 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,303 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The contact owns a 2003 Lincoln Ls. While driving 35 mph she noticed the parking brake/ service engine warning lights illuminated on the instrument control panel. Several days later while starting the ignition she noticed smoke under the hood of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a local repair facility. A technician stated that she had an oil leak from the rear of the engine that was dripping on the exhaust manifold. Also the engine would go into limp mode without warning; which drastically reduced the vehicles speed. She had the throttle body repaired at an expense of $489. The repair did not remedy the failure. The failure and current mileages were 77,303. The steering was noisy when the consumer made turns, the anti-lock brake light and traction control light illuminated. The oil pan was leaking. All of the tire had to be replaced due to excessive wear. The power steering fluid was also leaking from the vehicle. Updated 01/26/10.
