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.

The contact owns a 2005 Lincoln Ls. The contact was driving 30 mph when the check engine and wrench warning lights illuminated. Whenever the lights were illuminated, the vehicle would decelerate and then stall for approximately three seconds. The engine would have to be turned off and then restarted in order for the vehicle to reset itself. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who advised that the emission coil needed to be replaced. The emission coil was replaced however three weeks after the repairs, the vehicle begin exhibiting signs of the same failure. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure mileage was 60,000 and the current mileage was 90,958.

Ford Lincoln Mercury~manufacture warranty extended on ignition coil - but each time ignition coil goes out it causes numerous "other repairs" costing $900+ each time.~ vehicles begins to run rough, the temperature gauge goes to top, the car looses power (while in traffic even though foot on accelerator) will not accelerate~ 5 times in less than 11 months~ these "other repairs done each time ignition coil is replaced should be covered under extended manufacture warranty. (incidents June 2009/ October '09/ January 2010/ March 2010/ April 2010).

2005 Lincoln Ls will start to skip and sputter especially on incline. Engine light does not go on. Replaced fuel filter and problem still has not gone away.
