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.

problem #1

Mark VIII LSC 4.6L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles


Broken blend door actuator after car sat for two years in the a/c position. Went without heat for 2 Wisconsin winters. Found a video on youtube on how to manually switch the blend door actuator to "heat on". it's behind the glove box, to the left, a little gray lever that you can push up or down. You need to move it about twice a winter to keep the heat hot.

Why is this part failing on ALL of these vehicles? Ford - FIX THIS!!! I froze my butt off and wanted to blow this car up.
