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.

Town Car YES 4.6L

engine idles very strange when in gear and stopped

Car runs great normally. Whenever I have the car in gear with my foot on the brake it will idle fine for 30 seconds. Then it idles rough for 30 seconds. It will repeat this as long as I sit in one spot. If I turn the A/C on it doesn't do it. If I put it in neutral it won't do it. It use to give me a code that indicated that the number 3 cylinder was not firing. I checked the plug and coil pack and they were fine. I replaced them anyway and it still does it. I have cleaned the AIC Volve, the EGR and the mass air sensor. No change. Ideas?
