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 #2

Town Car Executive 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 179,000 miles


Never even knew it was possible to have a spark pull blow out. Once it occurred, of course all kinds of info about it. Lucky my engine didn't catch fire and I was able to have a kit installed. I now read that they might not last very long so I am starting to look for another vehicle.

Town Car Signature Series 4.6L Engine

  • Automatic transmission
  • 137,483 miles

Well, it happened again. Our beautiful Town Car blew #3 spark plug-at 70 mph-a second time. Got stranded in a one horse mountain town-no mechanic on duty on Mondays-guess what day it was-had to be towed-$150-had to spend the night at a nice (?) hotel-cost $140 per night-repair, again, another $800-had to turn around and return home-as 1/3 of our vacation money went to repair this damned problem a second time.

Why doesn't someone come up with a solution to this problem, we love our beautiful Lincoln-but, you know what ? Three times and you're out. Does anyone want to buy a Lincoln Town Car-CHEAP ///
